The Guitar

guitar 01I played rock and roll and rhythm and blues, and then jazz and classical music offered more. I love the guitar styles from Brazil and Africa too. The guitar speaks in many voices.

Today I play what I call “Contemporary Guitar”, a catch-all phrase that reflects my interest in many styles and approaches to the instrument. I received my degree in classical guitar performance from the University of Miami, but I’m an improviser, and I try to bring a jazz mind to my playing.

Here’s a short demo medley of some of my favorite guitar pieces:KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA
