ABOUT RICHARD GILEWITZ "I actually wanted to be a drummer. Five minutes after my folks heard that news, they bought me a guitar. I tried flat picking, but the pick kept falling in the hole. At one point I thought about playing a harmonica, so I blew on that for about a month. Then a real harmonica player saw me in action and said, 'Did you know if you breathe in you get all the other notes? You could ride down the road and hold it out the car window and get what you're doing.' So I recovered and rediscovered fingerstyle guitar."
