ABOUT

I have played guitar since a teenager with a few breaks here and there due to work and family commitments. Through the decades, styles I pursued were a bit of rock/pop, blues, quite a bit of world music and jazz. I also studied for a few years classical guitar in a Swiss conservatory. Having lived on all continents I had many opportunities to listen and be exposed to a variety of musical styles.

I am currently playing with a few mates and setups. One of them is a little smooth funk/jazz combo (see http://www.merlotones.band/). Attached clips recorded via a Pro Tool 9 & good little mixing table. Bass and drum taken from iRealPro "playalong" facilities.
