Primary Instrument: Guitar

Born: March 7, 1960    

Born in Detroit and raised in Michigan, Argentina, Arizona, Oregon and California...It all started with a summer job as a lighting and sound apprentice at The Golden Bear Nightclub in Huntington Beach, CA in 1977. I saw Lee Ritenour, Larry Carlton and The Robben Ford Band and was immediately in love with the guitar.

My grandfather Agustin Cornejo was a reknowned Argentine folk guitarist so the instrument was in my blood. Two years at Golden West College, a year of study at G.I.T. (March/1983-84) and my love for jazz and r&b led to cover bands in southern California to learn the skill of musicianship....

Become a fan of Andy Kotz Track
From Guitar Player Magazine (January 2009 issue) ... What Editor in Chief- Michael Molenda says about Andy Kotz's track “Driving”:

“Jump into Kotz's car and you won't get anywhere fast, but you'll dig the slow, funky ride. Kotz lets his churning groove percolate like an idling Ferrari and leaves a lot of space between his buzzy, often wah-filtered bends and melody stabs. It's a slick display of restrained seduction.”

Main arsenal: Custom Erickson strat (electric guitar), custom John Carruthers strat (electric guitar), Ibanez 2690 (ES-335 style) electric guitar, Yamaha CGX-171 classical guitar, Line 6 Flextone III guitar amp with FBV Shortboard (foot amp switcher), Original CryBaby wah-wah. Beyond that: assorted instruments and miscellaneous pedals, efx, etc. Play with Dean Markley and Ernie ball Super Slinky strings but favor D'Addario XL (.09-.42) strings.
