I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

If 6 Was 9 - Charlie Hunter

Think you've seen it all...note that there isn't a bass player...this guy is doing it all.

First coming to prominence in the early 1990s, Hunter has recorded 17 albums. Hunter plays custom-made seven and eight-string guitars, on which he simultaneously plays basslines, rhythm guitar, and solos. Critic Sean Westergaard describes Hunter's guitar technique as "mind-boggling ... he's an agile improviser with an ear for great tone, and always has excellent players alongside him in order to make great music, not to show off."

Shown here is a custom "Charlie Hunter" model by Novax Guitars.

  1. Great blend of high energy jazz and the blues! This is a tight band with great chops. I enjoyed the drummer and his zest for playing. The sax as a lead in a blues track...just great

  2. Thanks for your comments... yes pretty cool!
