Alex Guillen

Hi, I am an acoustic guitarist/composer & arranger with almost 20 years of professional playing experience in the San Diego area. My dad first showed me how to strum my first chord on his Spanish Guitar when I was 12 years old and I've been hooked on that beautiful sound ever since!
I am a very versatile guitarist and who is comfortable playing many different styles of music from Classical, Flamenco, & Latin Jazz to Jazz standards, Bossa Nova, Mariachi, World Music and beyond. When I perform my original music compositions they have been described as having "exciting guitar passages coupled with enchanting melodies that creates a sound that lingers in the listener's ear long after the performance is over."
As a solo performer, I can either perform totally acoustic or if you would like a more full-bodied sound, I can perform with backing tracks that I record live with my guitar pedal to give the illusion of having more than one person playing at once. Whether I'm playing background ambient music for a corporate event or performing on stage in front of an attentive audience, you can rest assured of my commitment to you to always be punctual, courteous and professional.
