About Pat Kirtley
Pat Kirtley (born in Kentucky, USA) is a American fingerstyle guitarist, composer and guitar teacher. In the early seventies, after having played in groups including pop, rock, jazz, and a nine-piece R&B show band, Kirtley moved away from electric guitar and began focusing on the acoustic, playing both steel-string and nylon-string guitars. During this time he began to develop his unique playing style, using alternate tunings, and writing original material. During 1974-75 Kirtley recorded his first album, with eastern Kentucky guitarist Wendell Cornett. Read more about Pat Kirtley on Last.fm.
