~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

COUNTRY: in the styles of Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Hand Garland, etc. Jim played only country for three years, perfecting his technique and songs to stay true to the American Country traditions.

CLASSICAL: Andres Segovia was Jim's only classical teacher, seven years. Jim performed his solo debut at Carnegie Recital Hall to and instant standing ovation and was invited to teach at the Julliard School of Music. Jim has a world hit the of greatest single piece of music written for guitar, Recuerdos de la Alhambra, 5,500,000 views on YouTube (see below)

GOSPEL: Jim's personal favorite, and it shows. So fun to see him play a boogie and What A Friend We Have In Jesus at the same time and then play In The Garden, or As The Deer with such passion and flair. PTL for his incredible Gospel guitar work.

LATIN: Louis Bonfá, Antonio Carlos Jobim, etc. Jim brings out the true flavor of the Latin favorites.

JAZZ: Jim lived and breathed jazz for seven years and says: "Most jazz players lose the audience by not sticking close to the melody, our real job is to have the audience like what we are doing." And you will fall in love with the sweet way he plays everything. Jim's jazz influences include: Wes Montgomery, Howard Roberts, Joe Pass, Jim Hall, Jimmy James, etc.

SPANISH: Blistering runs and playing so passionate it will bring you to tears. Wait till you hear his fiery version of Greensleves, similar to Paco de Lucia.

POPULAR: So many beautiful pieces

NOVEL: You'll have so much fun watching Jim play two songs at the same time and many others with a second part, it's like two players in one. This alone will make your day.
