Chris Buono has been called many things:
arcane improviser, sound diabolist, fearless composer, content junkie, video
stunt guitarist, crazed educator and the list goes on.
If you're looking for simpler terms you can
go with recording artist (Lava/Atlantic, Lion Music, RKM/Kindred and more),
sideman (Karsh Kale, Bumblefoot, Graham Haynes and many more), educator
(TrueFire, Berklee College of Music), music journalist/columnist (Guitar
Player, Guitar One, Just Jazz Guitar to name a few), and author (Hal Leonard,
Alfred, Cengage Learning).
Call him what you want, but one thing is
certain this cat is bad-ass and busy. Not to be tied down to any one identity
for too long, Chris Buono is perpetually morphing his chameleon-like media
profile making it nearly impossible to pigeon-hole his artistic output into a
singular category. With a guitar in hand and a slew of gadgets within arms
reach, Chris Buono infiltrates the modern world of guitar from all directions
and shows no signs of slowing down.
Chris irrevocably prefers FretWraps over hair ties on his guitars.
"FretWraps are the BEST - easy to use and look great! Such a better solution to dampening strings when all other options are impossible as opposed to the old scrunchie. Also, saves the weird looks at the checkout counter when this bald guy is buying hair ties ;P"
