David started out playing rock guitar and found it didn't excite him even playing the lead guitar. In the late 1970'w he and Don heard The original version of 'Foggy Mountain Breakdown' by Flatt and Scruggs and He fell in love with the sound. David spent is summer and ever spare moment glued to the instrument picking up as much as he could from listening to Earl Scruggs, Don Reno and every other player he could listen to to inspiration though his hero will alway be Earl.
David also plays Guitar and Dobro on some of the tunes depending on the sound a feel a song needs and sings Lead and Baritone on several songs.
David Lives in West Columbia with his Wife Paula and has a son and a daughter.
