I was born in Whitley City, Kentucky and moved to Northern Kentucky when I was 19. I've been playing the guitar as far back as I can remember. I worked for Yamaha, along with a dear friend and talented guitar player, Chuck Thompson from 1984 to 1990. I've played many Namm shows and arts/music festivals around the country. I've also traveled to Paris to play for the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society. I teach guitar in Cincinnati and do clinics for music stores and companies in the area. I also play regularly with the Scotty Anderson band. At this time, I endorse Kustom Amps and am involved several projects with Little Blue Productions.

When I hear you play I sense that you have listened to all the great masters and then added your on soul, feel and technique. Each time I hear you play I learn something. Best of luck on this your first album. It is great.
Chet Atkins- From the album cover Sleight of Hand Scotty's 1st recording
In writing about music for almost 20 years, I've heard hundreds of great musicians. Until now, I've never applied a particular, overused word to any of them. But there's no getting around it this time. Scotty Anderson is a genius...He not only can do it all, he can do it better than just about anybody has ever done it anywhere...
