This is the music I like – soothing, inviting and relaxing. Your guitar playing is so tasty. You seem to know very well that less really means more. The way your music mixes blues with jazz, soul and latin is so enjoyable. I would call it the old school approach – getting to know the basics and then more advanced stuff, getting to know the rhythm first. Young players don’t play like that anymore and this is a pity.
I play a variety of genres. They include Blues, Jazz Smooth Jazz, R & B, Latin and some Flamenco, Regae and Calypso, Jazz standards,
Some songs in my set list are:
High Heel Sneekers, Honky Tonk, I can see Clearly, Ipaneima, This Masquerade, Misty, and I love Her,
Hey Joe, Killing me Softly, Lets Stay together, My Girl, Caught Up in the Rapture, Autumn Leaves, Take 5
