Doug quote: 'I'm honored that people refer to me as a master, but like any musical instrument, there is always something new to learn. Some new way of expressing the instrument. My music has become much more than I dreamed and is more than just a musical journey, it's a spiritual journey as well. It really is a gift from the Creator. I am honored to have touched the hearts and lives of so many people.'
