I always show up early!

Once you have hired me,we will speak or use message on Gigmasters about your
event days or weeks before so i know what you expect
from me as your music entertainer including volume level and even proper dress.


Please please please-see my profile for audio/video samples!
(new samples to be added/updated periodically) and make sure this
kind of music will be a good fit for YOUR event!


*If you have song requests, if possible allow me to have time to prepare an arrangement
for you before your event.

I have been playing the guitar for 30 years now.


i have played for guitar competitions in Finger-style and open guitar/acoustic guitar,
i have played for weddings, private parties, corporate events,coffee houses, open gigs,
was a member of The Cincinnati Guitar Society, and have opened for bands in the central Ohio area.


Over the years i have been invited and attended various guitar clinics some private such as Gary Hoey,
and George Lynch(Dokken) and classical instructors such Classical/Chet Atkins instructors John McClellan
and Robert Anderson, Buster b Jones, Doyle Dykes, and son of Merle Travis-Thom Bresh, as well as members of
The Kentucky Thumbpickers Club-of whom i have learned much from all of these people from their clinics and sessions.


Today my playing style is heavily influenced by the Spanish-Flamenco guitar of:
Juan Serrano
Sabicas
Carlos Montoya
Heitor Villa Lobos
Manitas De Plata
Gypsy Kings-Tonino Balliardo

Percussive/World/Flamenco rhythms are a staple in my playing.

Jazz Fingerstyle:
Earl Klugh
Wes Mongomery
George Benson
Bucky and John Pizzarelli
Joe Pass
many many more

Country-Fingerstyle solo guitar:
Buster B Jones
Tommy Jones
Chet Atkins
Merle Travis
Jerry Reed
Doyle Dykes.

Solo Acoustic Guitar on nylon string guitars. No vocals.

I use finger, and palm techniques and nail tone which allows me to keep a rhythm while
continuing to play melodies.


I performed in competition 2010 and 2011 on the Merle Travis Stage of the Merle Travis Music Center
in Muhlenburg County Kentucky, home of the Thumbstyle sound.



Please allow me the opportunity to add the setting of background
guitar music to your event :)

We hired Paul a few weeks before the event and we were happy he was available on such short notice. He was quick to respond, very accommodating with our requests, and was open to exchanging ideas. He helped set the tone of the party with his music and it was clear that he was “in the zone”. Our guests commented on his talent and the wonderful experience they had! We would hire Paul again without reservations!
