Tammy Gardner grew up in Fanwood, New Jersey, which is a mile square. There were probably 3 girls in the area playing guitar at that time and she was the best… which is essentially saying she was the “Cream of the Crap” because none of them were any good. She moved to Virginia Beach in the late 70's and was fortunate enough to fall in with some pretty talented guitar playing co-workers who taught her a few things.

Later she began to study with the master, Lewis McGehee, and learned there was something you could do above the 3rd fret. She has always been a songwriter. One of the great joys of her life is that she co-write several songs with Lewis… all but one of which are actually too hard for her to play. She was half of the female duo TK LLegs Tammy was the right leg)… and played regularly for around 3 years in the early 90's. She can still hold the strings down at 61 years old.

Her current claim to fame is that she is the owner of internet sensation, Bodie the bad dog hound. Yes, he even has his own theme song.
