My book 'Playing Guitar In Jazz Band' is released internationally by Alfred Publishing. It's designed to help young guitarists playing in school or college big band jazz groups.
Growing up in Vancouver, David was first was exposed to the world of professional music at the age of twelve. As a teenager, he was part of many bands and played locally regularly, moving from one playing situation to another, refining his guitar skills and performance. At the expense of his academic courses at the University of British Columbia's School of Music (Canada), he would often spend hours in the music library listening to a wide variety of guitar music from delta blues, to Django and to classical. During that period he was also introduced to the recording studio namely, "Vancouver Recording" (with legendary Vancouver engineer/producer Robin Spurgin), one of the very few pro studios in town at the time, which he frequented for days at a time, observing sessions and doing everything and anything he could to gain "studio" experience.
