I write about the guitar.

My books are about the discoveries I make on my lifelong musical journey. Enjoy!
"Number One with an AXE! Vol 2, 1960-64"

My latest ebook is the continuation of a fun, guitar-oriented tour through the history of Billboard's American Number One hits. Every #1 song from 1960 to 1964 is critiqued based on four guitar-centric criteria: Riffage, Rhythm Playing, Fills and Solos. Video links for each song provided. Tons of fun for lovers of guitar and pop music. I hope you'll enjoy it! -MR
