Everyone calls me GC.  I sing and play the Chapman Stick®. 

It’s a stringed instrument from California, looks like the neck of a guitar, but instead of only picking, plucking or strumming is made for tapping on the strings, (similar to the technique pioneered by guitarist Eddie Van Halen.) It’s the go-between of guitar and piano, left hand low notes, right hand high notes, like a piano but on strings.

I’m originally a bassist, was inspired by the challenge of the Stick®, so now after many years playing it, here I am.
