    Perfect timing, tone and his unusual picking style has enchanted guitar players from the novice to his peers. His eclectic career has made him a remarkable performer, an experienced instructor and a highly sought after session musician.Jim joined the Grammy-nominated Claire Lynch Front Porch String Band in 1995 where he teamed up with kindred spirit bassist Missy Raines. Later, Jim and Missy’s duo show earned them IBMA Guitar&Bass Player of the Year for 2001 and 2002. With four solo works to his credit, Jim’s virtuosity shines AGAIN on his new CD, Looking Glass; deft finger work, melodic mastery and smooth vocals. Jim performs his solo show full time and teaches at guitar workshops and music camps in North America and Europe.

Q: Jim, Have you ever tabbed long and lonesome old freight train and do you use standard tuning? Thanks Bob
A: Hi Bob, Sorry but no, I haven't tabbed it, or hardly any of my songs - I don't read or write tab. It is in standard tuning except 'Drop D' - capoed second fret. Thanks for the question!
