West L.A. Music and Takamine Host John Jorgenson & Brad Davis
LOS ANGELES – Guitar virtuosos John Jorgenson and Brad Davis amazed West L.A. Music customers with their extraordinary blend of country, bluegrass, gypsy jazz, rock, and blues styles at a recent exclusive Southern California acoustic guitar clinic.

Davis also captivated fans with a fiery version of his Nashville hit, “Big Timber”.
