I haven't listened to this song since I showed it to my dad about 3 weeks ago before he passed. Also haven't been playing guitar but I'm back on the saddle and practicing. No way my dad wouldn't want me to practice. This is song/single #6 for me this year, if you like it please share maybe pop's will hear it if enough people play it 🙂

Been kind of reclusive lately. Last week my father passed away from cancer. Before he passed I was able to give and dedicate my newest song to him which I called "Daddy Mike". That's what I called him as a kid whenever I seen him on the weekends. He was pleased at hearing the song and video that had a bunch of his photos in the video but it wasn't until after the video that I told him the song and video were going to be world wide later this month that he teared up. I told him that I wanted to make sure the whole world knew who my dad was and that his legacy and his song would go on forever. Let me introduce to everyone, my father and song #6 "Daddy Mike".

Background
Born in Hayward, California 1968. I have been around guitars all my life. I have photos of myself at about 7 months old strumming a guitar. At the age of 5, I started receiving lessons from my father who at the time was studying Jazz. I learned the basics as I listened to music from Jimi Hendrix, Mahogany Rush, and KISS. From an early age I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, a famous guitar player.
 
Later in my teen years I learned to mimic the sounds and styles of guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen, Warren D’Martini, George Lynch, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, and countless others.
