Gary "Gnarly-He-Man" Lehmann
Arriving "home" within a day of the forum's opening, long time SlideMeister "cornerstone" Gary Lehmann AKA: "Gnarley He Man," is a prolific poster, and a witty, tech-savy Suzuki factory guy, and more. Gnarley has an extensive YouTube "liberry" of cool and useful instructive videos, and we just love having him around to pick on and learn from. :o)
Gnarly is a member that we more or less expect to hear from just about every day and he pretty much obliges with either some useful tech stuff, or just an amusing "thinkie" that makes ya smile and go: "Hmmmmmm"
And here we have Gary Lehmann, singer, guitarist, and harmonica player.
Gary was lucky enough to make something of a living in San Diego playing music for the last 35 years, much of it in town. Quite knowledgeable about American popular music, with a fondness for 60’s music, Gary was introduced to the harmonica by John Frazer, AKA Harmonica John, when they played a hotel two hours east of San Diego for months. Not much progress was made for ten years or so, until he got a gig that required harp (in the holder, with guitar).
It took Gary another ten years to make it to chromatic, and Slidemeister was an early aid. Since then Gary has developed repair skills (a cost-saving device) and become a harp technician. Again, through a stroke of luck, he has acquired the Harmonica Repair Technician spot with Suzuki Music USA, and so gets to rub elbows with some of the best harmonica players in the world.
Gary is married to Candy Meyer. As of April 2022, the two have been together for 33 years, and now make their home in Oklahoma.
