can't say enough good things about
Scott. Incredible musician! Hand him an instrument with a
fretboard and he makes it sings! An accomplished composer,
arranger and performer, Scott is also an author with a recent
publication on Right Hand Techniques titled Finger
Check out Scott's site for his
book and some sample tunes. One of my favorites is Count
Me In from Scott's Follow Me CD - High Quality,
so it's a little large but WELL worth the listen!
little Blues straight from Paris!

crowned, the comma of God on the walls of the city".
