While the guitar was his first instrument, Greg Thornburg has spent most of his adult life as a drummer and percussionist. Those earliest influences never left him, however, and with the releases of his 2 CDs "Kaleidoscope" and "Hook Echo", he's rededicated himself to his original muse.

Greg's affinity for rhythm, bass lines, and distinctive harmonies is well represented in fingerstyle playing. He greatly admires players such as Andy McKee, Antoine Dufour, Leo Kottke, and Wisconsin's own Willy Porter for their innovative approach to guitar playing. His performance features mostly original material, with a few arrangements mixed in. No longer shielded by drums, a soloist's stage is a fresh perspective, and a new way to connect with and entertain an audience.
