Studio Guitarist, soloist, composer, author, teacher and our fellow Jersey shore friend, Chris Buono
As his online bio reads Chris, makes music with a guitar and lots of pedals. Chris is an accomplished soloist, studio musician and composer and has performed and/or recorded with the likes of Dweezil Zappa, Snarky Puppy, and Karsh Kale.
He’s authored eight books, 40 guitar courses and has taught guitarists from all over the world through Berklee College of Music, TrueFire, Guitar Player, Guitar One, Just Jazz Guitar, Hal Leonard, Alfred, Course Technology & Guitarinstructor.com.
On a personal note, Chris is a long-time friend of ours for many years and you can hear it in the Jersey style sarcasm and wise cracks between us.
This conversation isn’t just for Guitar geeks though. We talk about networking, marketing, the importance of self-promotion and good old fashion hustling. Chris is also the ultimate “slash”, which we’ll get into later. While on the topic of Slashes, we also reminisce about how Chris, Jay and the former guitarist for Guns N Roses (No, the other one), Bumblefoot shared laughs & Thai food during a photoshoot at Jay’s old beach house in Belmar.
This conversation with Chris Buono is a good one and we hope you walk away motivated, inspired & entertained.
