I want to help

David O'Suna

Whether it is playing jazz, blues, rock, ragtime, classical, heavy metal, midi, folk or any combination of styles, I just like playing guitar. I have been teaching now for 28 years and coming up on my 33rd year as a professional musician. I now teach at Guitarville 19258 15th Ave NE Shoreline, WA 98155. Over the years I have traveled on the road playing music, been a producer, worked as a studio musician, written comedy, and played every conceivable kind of gig.

I have finished my next CD. I like to write and have always loved the way Wes Montgomery played. I thought it would be nice to hear that kind of sound on my tunes. We recorded the drums at Elliot Bay Recording Co. Scott Ross was the engineer. We recorded the acoustic piano at Nick Moore's house with both of us engineering. We used a mic snake from his front room to his studio into MOTU DP 4.6. The players involved in this project are Jeff Kashiwa Sax, Nick Moore Piano, Steve Kim Bass, Don Dieierich Drums, and myself on Guitar. The rest of the project was recorded at the Ranch and engineered by me.
