About this Event

John Standefer

National Champion Fingerstyle Guitarist

John Standefer is a true master of fingerstyle guitar. He began playing music very early on the drums, mandolin, and violin, taking up the guitar in 1963. Soon after hearing Chet Atkins play for the first time, he went to work learning Atkins’ style by ear while also studying music in a conservatory. These early accomplishments gave John a great start towards a career in music. By 1966, he had begun a lifetime career as a professional guitarist and teacher. His musical interests continued to expand to include folk, pop, jazz and bossa nova music (among others). As a result, the guitar arrangements he has developed contain a surprisingly colorful blend of styles, techniques and genres.

Over his life John has traveled throughout the U.S. and abroad performing concerts and teaching master classes. John has won national and international championships in fingerstyle guitar and has also performed and/or recorded with such guitar greats as Tommy Emmanuel, John Knowles, Brooks Robertson, Pat Kirtley, Guy Van Duser, Richard Smith and Doug Smith. These days John commonly finds himself playing venues and house concerts all around the country, and he appears yearly at the Chet Atkins conferences in Nashville.

Besides live appearances, John has produced numerous CDs, books, videos and TAB arrangements, which can be found in the store pages of this website. He continues to teach as well and, over the past several years, has cultivated a roster of guitar students from all over the world with the help of Skype. These online lessons have become a central part of his life these days and both he and the students are really enjoying the experience.
