The fine folks at +Thumbtack have informed me that I'm the 3rd Best Solo Musician in San Francisco for 2015. How 'bout that?

Hire me to play your event. It'll be fun. You'll see...

Recorded with love and admiration. Thank You Jaco. We love you.

RIP Jaco Pastorius Dec 1, 1951- Sept 21, 1987
Rob Michael is "That jazz guitar guy on the internet." Whether collaborating with people the word over on their newest albums & videos, teaching guitar and arranging via video calls to playing online concerts via web as a solo performer or with The Atmos Trio, Rob is tireless in his quest to perpetuate the transformative experience that a connection to music provides.

Want to experience slow internet speeds like those of other developing countries? It's easy! Just try to use the YouTube app while in the bathroom.

... At least the ad made it thru....

Watched the Glen Campbell documentary "I'll Be Me" last night and was moved and inspired by the story of his music career and his ongoing battle with Alzheimer's.

What a beautifully done film. An amazing gift to us and a lovely tribute from his family. Make sure you have tissue at hand.

I've walked past this sign hundreds of times but apparently finally read it for the first time today.

Good tip about not stage diving during a recital--don't you think?

Funny, I've always thought it was my playground and so do most musicians!

Accidentally left my phone somewhere last night. I'll fetch it later but I think I'll "accidentally" leave it someplace more often now.

That jazz guitar guy
I've been a guitar nut since I was ten years old.

That long-haired guy with the guitar--that was me all through school (I know, the long-haired part is difficult to believe, but it's true!). 

I have always known what I wanted to do with my life and the guitar has been a near-constant companion. 

I'm so fortunate to have the privilege of “Living the Dream” of a pro muso: Playing gigs, recording albums, making videos, teaching--I love it.

Teaching music is something I've long been passionate about. I see 40-60 private students here in the San Francisco Bay area where I live. I also give Lessons Online via Skype, G+ via private hangout.

I also lead an amazing band the Atmos Trio.

You'll find me playing live and in-studio concerts on Youtube, offering tunes at a "Pay What You Want (even nothing)" price on my Global Music Store, or if you prefer, you can find my music on iTunes or Google Play.

I also have a growing community of visual artists and musicians of all levels at My Blog or you can subscribe to my spam-free Newsletter.

See you on 'The Other Side' and oh, if you've read this far, you might as well drop me a "Howdy!"
