February News

What an honor it was to wake up last week to a feature in Guitar Player Magazine, they picked up my Jimi Hendrix Electric Ladyland video. Guitar Player is one of the largest guitar publication magazines out there. If you have not yet seen it, it is a Youtube video where I play all the main themes from Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland album back to back in one take.

I just finished shooting another one of the medley videos that is just about to be released. This time it is playing through every song from AC/DC’s - Back in Black record. Along with the video, I did 15-20 min guitar lessons of every song. Here is a playlist of all the songs that you can watch for FREE on YouTube

I recently had the opportunity to go into the studio with the band Polarcode, and record guitars on their new single “Cut You Loose” featuring Taylor John Williams from NBC’s The Voice,” Season 7.
The single was recently reviewed in Buzz Bands L.A. and they even gave a shoutout to my guitar playing.
