Nature, music, art, literature, architecture, and technology all serve as inspirations, setting craft into motion. Guitar is the principal medium of composition and expression. Learning begins and continues with listening and communing in a vocational manner. Formal studies establish the language and practical application. My name is Walter Kelly. I am a collector of sounds.
