Playing with Johnny Hilland at my N.G.W. seminar, Nashville July, 2006

I’ve been fortunate to play with Johnny on several occasions and it’s always an incredible and humbling experience. Besides being one of the nicest guys in the world, his technique and sense of melodic order are incredible! Especially his sense of “Time” Johnny’s time is “ABOUSLETY FLAWLESS” playing with him is like being run over by a a Freight Train!!
