“When I wanted to improve my playing, I went to James.”

Josh Rand, Stone Sour

“As a teacher, James has a knack for making all the tumblers fall into place and help you really ‘get it.’ I am proud to call James my teacher and influence.”

Mike Butterworth, the Nadas

“I knew that putting together an album that mixes hip hop, blues, pop and alternative rock was going to take some time. I had planned on needing to find numerous and various musicians in order to get all the styles portrayed, but I never worried about finding more than one guitar player after hearing James.”

Bonne Finken, Authentic Records recording artist
