Joseph Scarfone


30 plus years playing the guitar, 15 of those years actively gigging 5 and 6 nights a week. I just love this crazy 6 stringed instrument! I've been onstage with Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Little Anthony, and a host of others. As I've progressed I've found myself leaning more towards the jazz style. I still practice daily. I've been lucky to have played with some highly skilled well trained musicians during my carreer, but my advice to young players is get a qualified teacher, or attend a good music school. Learning on your own is difficult at best.

Open Your Mind

Be open to all kinds of music, don't be a music snob. I play some classical, fusion, jazz, country, anything and everything possible. It helped me make a living being versatile. And as I got older my taste changed. I'm glad I listened to Django and Wes when I was 16.
