Thanks for checking out my profile! My name is Jody Mac and I’m a 24 year old guitarist from New Brunswick, Canada. At age 12 I picked up a strat and I’ve never looked back since. My excitement about the instrument led me first to private guitar lessons, and eventually to New York where I was able to devote 4 years to studying the guitar under a number of gifted teachers.
I currently play in a Christian rock band along side fellow instructor Steve Hubbard. My undergraduate studies were predominately jazz and classical, but my heart has always been for the blues, funk and groove. I enjoy many genres of music, thus my influences are equally varied. I find inspiration in artists such as Pat Martino, Manuel Barrueco, Stevie Ray Vaughan, even contemporary artists such as John Mayer and Jason Mraz. Playing live has given me a deeper appreciation for the complexity of music creation and subtleties that must be achieved to create a sound worth talking about.
I look forward to joining you on your musical journey!
