Randy Ellefson started the guitar at the age of thirteen. He was interested in both acoustic and 1980's rock music. Like Brian May his dedication to guitar lead him to build two electric guitars and hasn't played any other guitar since.

His other passion is fantasy novel writing. However, in 1991, he became serious about studying music and attended music college. Practicing as much as 10 hours a day, he succeeded, earning a Bachelors of Music in classical guitar, Magna Cum Laude, 1995.

When the degree was over, he resumed fiction and recording instrumentals guitar tracks. Then in 1996 he got a severe case of tendonitis in both arms. To find out more read his own story about tendonitis. Unable to play guitar or type, he began to write fiction with a dictation program! Despite years of physio therapy, he can only play guitar 3-4 hours every other day!
