He didn’t pick up an interest in guitar until several years later. At age 11, he began taking guitar lessons from a local high school student, James Villone, and later moved on to learn under the instruction of Baxter Clement (Sandhills School of Performing Arts). He was introduced to blues music after beginning his lessons with Baxter, and quickly became fascinated by the soulful sounds of the blues.
