Have you ever seen Charlie Hunter play? If not, then do us a little favor, please, and go to YouTube. Once there, type in Charlie Hunter Recess and take a look/listen. The sound may be a little low so make sure to crank up the speakers. (Take your time. Were not going anywhere.)
Pretty badass, right? The eight-string guitar guru has been doing amazing stuff like that since the early 90s. Hunter and his customized Novax eight-string which allows him to simultaneously play the guitar and bass, thanks to special frets has been burning down stages and blowing minds for a minute, whether backing DAngelo and the Soulquarians on the Voodoo tour, laying down tracks in the studio for John Mayer, or leading his own groups.
On Thursday, May 6, Hunter performs in support of his new album, Gentlemen, I Neglected to Inform You You Will Not Be Getting Paid, at the Rhythm Room.
