Charlie Guitar
Return to Profiles

Born 1955 in Niagara Falls, New York  a small city which has produced some of the  USA's best guitarists Charlie Guitar has been playing since the 1970's. After traveling with a number Beatle, Elvis and Nashville acts through out the 1980's Charlie decided it was time to be a solo instrumentalist.

Accepting the fact that he was not a singer Charlie took the  songs he loved the most and created his own style of "melodizing"  them. He embedded the melody within the chords, worked   in signature guitar licks, and kept the rhythm and bass lines going all at the same time. This way the audience can hear the singing the way they like, in their own head.

A permanent fixture in New York City's Central Park  for the past 15 years Charlie has been performing for the thousands of tourists and locals walking by. The beautiful music coming from his guitar is very much appreciated by the many who go there to escape the city noise.  Other favorite spots in NYC are the streets of Time Square and down in the Village playing for tips. Additional Charlie plays a gig at a trendy Soho club every Sunday. Last year he released Playing in Soho on CD and followed up this  year with the easy listening Spring 2006. 

Some recent career highlights include recording in Studio 2, Abbey Road in the  summer of 2000. Charlie recorded Please Please  Me on the same floor where the Beatles had done it 37 years earlier!  In 2016 he opened for Tony Sheridan at the INDRA In Hamburg the Beatles first venue in the seedy Reeperbahn. Next it was on to the Jacaranda in Liverpool to do a set in Allan Williams old establishment. In May of 2006 Charlie performed six shows at Abbey Road on the River the USA's top Beatle event. He will be looking forward to his first performance at the Cavern Club for Beatle Week 2006.
