2010 version: 2007 version:

This song is inspired by Latin American guitar music. I learned the arpeggio pattern from the great book by Rico Stover called The Latin American Guitar Guide. The strumming pattern I picked up from my time with the UCSC Latin American Ensemble. In the video I set up three cameras to record simultaneously. I will be recording a new version of this song for my next CD.

  3. A friend introduced me to a few of your videos on youtube and I can’t get enough! I could watch/listen to you play for days. Being an avid music lover myself, your love of music shines through your playing and is easily recognized!! I plan on buying your CD and will one day be able to attend one of your public shows (I live in South Carolina). Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the world. I, for one, am touched deeply.

  4. John,
    Never say that you will never be the best guitarist… To my ears, you are! It is subjective anyway;

    An old proverb;
    The bird that says it cannot reach the highest limb of the tree, will never know how sweet it’s fruit taste!

    By the way, I love the guitar and scratch plate engravings…
