(re) Discovering Chet

Since this past Spring, I’ve become randomly obsessed with the wonderful music of Chet Atkins. I’ve been well aware of Chet since I was a kid (The TV show Hee-Haw was my window into country music back then), but I’ve been over-taken over by his guitar style and have been staying up until3am every morning practicing this wonderful way of navigating the guitar. It’s been a hoot!

This fun version of Jingle Bells is my offering in the Chet style featuring solo, duo and trio guitars. Dig the Christmas lights? Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel. I’ll have more videos featuring this guitar style in 2015.

This new tune is included in my “Christmas by the Fire” EP which you can find on my storeGoogle Play or on iTunes if you do the iThing.

Happy New Year everyone! See you on the other side.

New track added to my Everything album

One giant stream/ download available everywhere in the world via desktop or mobile.

Is this electronic or acoustic? I don't know… Hope you dig it.

Play SLOWER! when practicing music

It's a mantra among all the best musicians I've ever known. It is a message I repeat to my students at least 40 times everyday. I say it because I care.

Here is an excellent article that breaks down why this is so crucial and yet so often ignored.

As much as I love electric instruments, effects and amplifiers, acoustic guitar sometimes makes you feel closer to the "Core of existence."

That sounds so corny, but I think it's true! For two months now, I've been loving the simple life of an acoustic musician. Think I'll just hang out here a while longer.

My first +YouTube video in some time, this doubles as a studio tour as well as a dual between my Jazz guitar and the classical. Bach brings it all together.

Omitted from this video is the improvisational duet on Bach’s invention that preceded what you see here.
