I am Smitty, and I play guitar... a lot.
My current band and passion is a blues-rock assault project called Hurts Like Hell. The guys I jam and write with are amazing, and we have a great time
recording and gigging. I suggest you hire us and buy our music so we can keep doing it.
I’ve been playing and recording for longer than I care to admit. I’ve decided to share my "guitarchives" on the web. Keep an eye
on my store for more back-catalog, solo-projects, rarities, and fan "freebies" as I learn embrace this digital reality.
Want to learn to play or maybe refresh your guitar skills? I teach all styles to players at every level and focus on fun. Think about it: you’re learning to PLAY guitar, after all. If playing isn't fun, you're doing something wrong. I teach in the Olympia area, and will soon offer lessons via live web-stream for aspiring riffsters wherever they may be hiding. Is that you? Let's connect
and "up" your gee-tar game!
Recording? I am also available as a hired-gun for your next project. Acoustic or electric: blues, rock, country, metal, jazz, jam... I love to lay it down, and can nail the take in short order. Whether an in-person studio session or a virtual handshake
(trading files over the internet), I am your man. Contact me, and let’s work a deal.
