What Others Say

The spirit of Lenny Breau lives in Rick Washbrook’s guitar playing.

I enjoy seeing Washbrook’s enthusiasm as he shares his love of playing the guitar. When he swings with that walking bass, comping chords and melody simultaneously, it is so musical while sounding effortless.

It’s heartwarming to hear Washbrook holding the flame in regards to the great guitarist Lenny Breau. Washbrook obviously finds inspiration from Lenny while developing his own inner voice and vision. You can hear his passion, heart and soud on his CD ‘A Gypsy’s Bed’.
