User Bio

I have been playing guitar since 1965, and am listed among the 100 top Acoustic Guitarists on the digitaldreamdoor site: digitaldreamdoor.com/pages/best_jazz/best_acousticddd.html (It's always nice to be on someone's top 100 list!) I have recorded a bunch of solo guitar CD's, and my music appears on 8 DVD's, including "Guitar Artistry of El McMeen," distributed by Rounder Records and Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop. I have written or co-written books for Mel Bay Publications, including "Art of Dropped D Guitar" and "The Mel Bay Complete Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar Book." The latter book, co-written with Stefan Grossman and Richard R. ("Duck") Baker, is a "Mel Bay Best Seller."

I greatly enjoy working with other guitarists to help them find their own unique "voice" on the guitar.

I am an Honorary Elder of Living Waters Fellowship, in Newton, NJ- theLWF.org - and encourage interested people to visit the church website.
