National Fingerpicking Champion Chris Proctor has earned a solid reputation as a master of 6- and 12-string acoustic guitar. His acclaimed CDs on Flying Fish, Windham Hill, Rounder and Sugarhouse Records embrace classical, blues, jazz, folk, Celtic and pop traditions. He has toured the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and has taught his techniques through hundreds of guitar clinics for Taylor Guitars, workshop columns for Fingerstyle Guitar and Acoustic Guitar magazines, several books of transcriptions, and videos and DVDs for Homespun Tapes. All of these testify to his standing as one of today’s leading fingerstyle composers, arrangers, and performers.
“There has been an explosion of fingerstylists over the last few years, but Proctor’s compositions and rich palette of textures and timbres set him off from most of the pack.” (Guitar Player)
