About the author
As a lifelong singer and songwriter, Rich found a career in education, spending time as a teacher, researcher and educational multimedia developer. Displaying interest in learning the guitar as a teenager, Rich received his very first guitar from his Grandpa Charlie. This guitar, his musical background, educational experiences and having two young children are the inspiration for this book. Rich hopes this book serves as a platform for learning and generating discussion around patterns, the joy of music, and how it affects our emotions.
