The recordings on this page were made with a Boss BR1200 CD multitrack recorder. I have four guitars and a bass: Gibson L-5, Fender Telecaster, Classical nylon from a luthier named Nakade, steel string acoustic from a luthier named Sauve, and a Fender Jazz Bass. The guitars and bass go directly into the BR1200, or through a PODxt first, or recorded "in the air" with microphones.
I've studied in the past with some excellent teachers: Don Mock, Jay Roberts, and Rich Falco. And, I've had the good fortune to attend some terrific clinics from people such as: Jim Hall, Pat Martino, John Schofield, Larry Coryell, Ulf Wakenius, Howard Alden, Frank Vignola, John Pisano, John Pizzarelli, Vic Juris, Cory Christiansen, Kevin Eubanks, and others.

I also enjoy photography. The link to my photos is at tomhealy.smugmug.com
