rock guitar instrumentals. If you like what you find here, there
are more songs for listening and downloading at at J.C.'s home page(http://home.comcast.net/~jcm505/).
has been inventing and reinventing his melodic rock guitar sound
for more than 25 years. A native of Georgia, he learned learned
his first riffs by observing the Southern rock movement up close.
He later studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, and
worked to fuse his blues-rock upbringing with the technical mastery
of the jazz fusion world.
years later, his playing shows the impact of a wildly divergent
group of influences, from Al Dimeola, Carlos Santana and Ritchie
Blackmore, to Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler and many,
many others. Over the years, J.C. lent his unique blend of guitar
worlds to dozens of artists. Now, his solo work reflects a philosophy
which he sums up in one sentence: the sound of a guitar is a beautiful
thing and deserves a melody.
