Hi, I’m Chris. 

Music is my passion.

Whether I’m composing, meeting people, playing a show, tinkering with my guitars, or giving lessons, getting great sound has always been my focus.

I believe that tone is in the hands of the player.

We all want a palate of sounds and tools. The reality is that few of us will ever be able to afford to update our entire rig with high end stuff. 

That’s why I created a video blog and named it Blue Collar Shred.

Blue Collar Shred does demos using a setup that most players can relate to. After all, what’s the point of a demo if you have no idea how that guitar sounds through an amp like yours?

Blue Collar Shred: Learn stuff. Choose wisely. Sound Better.

My cat is probably a lot cooler than your cat.

I often underestimate the overall coolness and versatility of this guitar. #partscaster #telecaster

I get to spend a substantial amount of my day off in this room full of awesome. That’ll do.
