emotionally evocative,progressive, ambient fingerstyle acoustic compositions. an eclectic array of pieces that convey ,reflecting elements of various styles, jazz,celtic, romantic classical,new age.


i am a former rock musician who has truly discovered his musical inspiration in the solo, ambient acoustic realm. a deep spiritual connection to life and its many wonders has led me to follow the path i have chosen with my music.the more mainstream associations of my past were a slight disillusionment, and the present is where i have truly discovered where i am musically,as both a person and an artist. my compositions are not solely for myself but for the spirit of others as well.i would be glad to know that others feel the same healing effect from my music that i feel when i listen to my primary inspirations(alex degrassi, will ackerman,eric, tingstad,muriel andersen,stephen bennett, ed gerhard, and the list goes on!)

"John Tinger's new instrumental guitar CD ,"Everything Coincidental",is an inspiring collection of original works. The cutting edge playing techniques and special tunings guide the music and touch the soul. I love to listen when i want to be creative myself!"

i have no typical set list. there is no particular order.
spontaneity in terms of what to play is basically how i choose my performances.
