Hi there this is Charles and I play guitar
Although I am not a virtuoso, I do enjoy getting together every week with the band – The South Texas Eskapers and playing music. We have a lot of fun together and we learn a few new tunes along the way. We are eclectic in style, in other words we are not stuck on any particular type of music. But we do blues the best. Blues with a subtle jazz timbre to it.
Our second love is country music. We are down home in the country here in South Texas so it is only natural that we do some country. It too has a bluesy subtle flavor to it with just a little Spanish Flamenco added in Down On The Border. It is because along with being in South Texas we are only 150 miles from the great nation of Mexico, Laredo to the South West and Del Rio to the West.
Once again the blues is the foundation for all of our music. Even when we do Rock and Roll Blue Jean Blues by ZZ Top. This one is especially heavy duty rock blues. Incidentally this is one of my favorite. It brought me out of my shell.
I could go on and on but this is what it is about us, The South Texas Eskapers we are a truly unique Texas Band. And here is where you can learn how to play the blues by learning the best blues scale.
