Richard Smith
The most amazing guy I know on the guitar. He can play anything I know, only better.
- Chet Atkins, CGP (music legend)

If you like my playing, you should hear Richard Smith! The world champion!
- Tommy Emmanuel AM, CGP (two-time Grammy nominee)

Richard started playing the guitar at age 5 and has never looked back. Focusing early on with the fingerstyle guitar of Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed, he began transcribing classical music, Jazz, the gypsy style of Django Reinhardt, bluegrass, ragtime and the blues to Sousa marches. Now a seasoned performer in his forties with thousands of performances worldwide to his credit.  In 2018, Richard performed on five continents... North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia including performances with and alongside Tommy Emmanuel, Eric Clapton, Albert Lee, Dave Peacock, Martin Taylor, Brent Mason, Gary Brooker, Stuart Duncan, Bryan Sutton, Joe Brown, Ralph McTell and many others.
