Influential and innovative guitar and bass players

Anyone wanting to learn to play guitar surely has a long list of guitar players that they like and would like to learn. A while back I put together a list of suggested listening for my students at AAW. The list is mostly made of of my favorites but most would agree that these guitar and bass players are some of the most influential and innovative players to date. If you have not already done so I definitely suggest checking out their music. This list is in no particular order and I know there are many missing so please feel free to add more in the comments!

JAZZ

FINGERSTYLE

CLASSICAL

BLUES

ROCK

BASS

and this is just the short list…..

Happy New Year

Happy new year to all! This year is suiting up to be a great one. There are some Major changes in the works. For starters I have return to my position at Gus Zoppies Music Center as a guitar and bass instructor for private lessons. I will be taking students Monday thru Thursday nights. If you are interested in taking lessons you can call (586) 978-1816 for available time slots. Lessons are $20 per 1/2 hour. I have a promotion going on for all students. If you refer a new student that takes at least one full month of lessons I will give you 2 free lessons.

Also, I am leaving Arts Academy in the Woods. This was a hard change to make but I am looking forward to spending more time working on the many projects I have had in the works for some time now including new solo guitar tunes, an acoustic duo and songwriting with Jon Vidal, and Jazz music with Chuck Bartel.
