The Derek Day classical guitar playing has been described as sweet toned with a superb sense of phrasing. But his solo performances are not just with classical guitar.
Professor Day is also an accomplished jazz guitarist and plays in duos along with guitarist Ned Attayek and saxophonist and journalist Owen Cordle.
No one fits better the philosophy of this site. He's a dedicated and talented teacher of guitar and clearly someone who shares his playing talent with audiences out of his love of music and not a search for fame and fortune.
