Style: Solo Guitar music. *No vocals*

Full size PA sound system for all events

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 is what you had in mind!

i was once hired for a music event and once i was there during the event,
i was asked to play a certain kind of ethnic music that i was not familiar with nor was
it what we agreed upon and in our Gigmasters contract.
and unfortunately i was not able to play the songs. and of course i did not get a
review from them or response for a review.
So please do not do that! Talk to me and let me know if the music i perform is what you want.


I have been playing the guitar for 30 years now.

i started with electric guitar and then switched interests to the acoustic
and Spanish guitar about 15 years ago.

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.


Influences: I played for a professional christian rock band when i played electric guitar in the 90s, called Jacobs Dream.
Now, i play Classical/Flamenco themed music through acoustic electric nylon guitars which enables me to play through
amplifiers/PAs for larger sound.



Today my playing style is heavily influenced by the Spanish-Flamenco guitar of Juan Serrano, Sabicas, as well as
- Carlos Montoya and *Heitor Villa Lobos, Manitas De Plata and Rodrigo Y Gabriela, and Gypsy Kings.

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

On the other side of that coin i am well influenced in the Americana picking styles of:
Chet Atkins, Merle Travis and Jerry Reed, Doc Watson, Tommy Emmanuel and Doyle Dykes.

Style: Solo Guitar. No vocals.

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

I can perform for private events, parties,
weddings, business events and socials as well as small theatre venues.


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


If you and or your guests do not feel I performed/played as well as expected
and just are not satisfied with my playing, then YOU don't pay!



thank you,


-Paul

Beautifully talented! Paul's music added to the magic of our wedding celebration and dinner. He is also very professional in regards to communication, response time, attention to understanding the details during the planning stages and ensures he arrives early. Would hire him again and will refer him as often as possible! Pittsburgh Newlyweds

Paul Gregory Whitt did a spectacular job at our event! He provided background music for my company's shareholders dinner. He is a very talented and professional guitarist with a large repertoire. My only regret is that we didn't make him more of a focal point of the night. If given the opportunity, we would absolutely hire him again.
