As a professional guitar player for the last 40 years, I have played a variety of music from classical to country. My primary training is in classical guitar music and that is what I present on this site. I do however have arrangements of other tunes ranging from the Beatles to the Eagles.
Do you play live?
Yes, I play at many events in the Dallas/Fort Worth area such as weddings, cooperate functions, private dinners and parties. I do occasionally play in Austin as well as Oklahoma City.
Your influences?
Chet Atkins was the first guitar player that I remember hearing as a young child. Of growing up in the 60's, my influence ranged from the Beatles to Zeppelin. As I grow musically, I became aware of the classical guitar through artists like Segovia and Parkening. Leo Kottke, Michael Hedges, Joe Pass and Pat Metheny are just a few of the players that I have admired over the years.
My main influence now is music from the classical composers like Mahler, Schubert, Ravel and the list goes on and on. SOOOOO, I guess you can say I have a eclectic taste in music that ranges from Jimi Hendrix to Sergei Prokofiev and all points in between.
Favorite spot?
