We often are asked what our influences are. Here are a few of our favorite You Tube videos to help answer that question.

Acoustic Alchemy - The Beautiful Game

The hallmark steel string nylon string guitar combination of Acoustic Alchemy has been around now for eighteen years and over 15 albums. Their style is best labeled as smooth jazz yet, although their signature sound has remained, the music has continued to evolve in different, sometimes unexpected, but always delightful directions.

 Larry Carlton - Smiles and Smiles To Go

Carlton's studio credits from the 1970s and early 1980s include musicians and groups like Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Michael Jackson, Sammy Davis Jr., Herb Alpert, Quincy Jones, Bobby Bland, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and literally dozens of others.

Whether playing acoustic or electric guitar Larry Carlton is one of the best ever. (www.LarryCarlton.com)



Chet Atkins - Performing Vincent(Starry Starry Night)

Without Chet Atkins, "Mister Guitar", country music may never have crossed over into the pop charts in the 1950s and 1960s.  During the 1950s and 1960s, he helped create the Nashville sound, a style of country music that owed nearly as much to pop as it did to honky tonks. As a guitarist, he is without parallel.  No one man has had more influence on the guitar than Chet. (www.MisterGuitar.com)
