Monthly Motivation-Jaunito Márquez

TK Smith

A friend of mine turned me on to Cuban guitarist Jaunito Márquez a few years ago and lately I’ve been listening to him daily. I really love the sound he gets without using a pick. I’m finding myself not using a pick a lot these days since it seems all of my thousands of picks have apparently grown legs and wondered off.

Here’s one of my favorite tracks from the CD “arrímante pa’ cá” .

03 Guita Nova

Below is an unfortunately out of sync video showing Jaunito’s unique style.
