Michael "Hooks and Grooves" Rhine
Michael has played music since the mid-sixties working through many diverse styles in over 30 different bands. Due to the improvisational nature of his musical endeavors, Michael is comfortable in blues, rock and jazz idioms. After studying classical and jazz guitar at the University level, he pursued private teaching while working in the Midwest as a professional musician. Considering himself an "aural artist" (not just a musician), Michael brings an eclectic blend of rhythms and techniques to "New Territory". Influences are many and diverse: Jimmy Smith, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, John McLaughlin, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, Eric Clapton and The Allman Brothers.

Instrument tuning types...
You simply must have these 4 note, mobile position chords under your fingers.
Remember, all of us will be at varying stages of progress for
each tune at any period of our lives.
Lemme hear from you if this is of value. I hope it saves you time in getting to the music.
