Is this the kind of thing that the artist comes up with off-the-cuff? That's a lot of musicianship there, and not a little mastery.

I saw him play last summer at a concert he put on in someone's house. I went because a friend told me that he was "one of the best". I thought she meant locally, so when he started playing I was absolutely dumbfounded. My head was swimming.

You’ll notice in that jam with Brent Mason, Mr. Smith takes an entire solo alternate picking with only the thumbpick, ala Scotty Anderson. Anyone who’s tried this knows that it is the Mt. Everest of guitar picking techniques. The double- and triple-stopping that Scotty does would be the K2. With no crampons, no oxygen mask...

Richard is one of the world's best though remains pretty much under the radar beyond the world of guitarists.

Anyone who impresses Tommy Emmanuel like that must be pretty good! Mr. Green

I have seen Richard play many times at the annual Chet Atkins appreciation Society each year in Nashville, (probably 15 to 20 years ago) and actually saw him win the Winfield Fingerstyle contest a few years ago. He is a great player,,,when he first came to CAAS he was with the Richard Smith Trio along with two of his brothers. Chet said that he was introduced to him when he was living in England, and Chet said at 12 he was playing everything he could play, but better.. Probably a bit of an exaggeration but Chet was a humble man and always promoted great players as he did with Tommy Emmanuel also. I have purchased a copy of every one of Richards cds and dvds, including the ones with his brothers...an amazing player for sure !! The first times I say him play he was using a Gretsch 6120 clone that his father built for them, because he said the family couldnt afford a real Gretsch. It looked great and Richard made it sound great too !

Richard and his wife came to Morro Bay a few years back and he was everything that has been said over the years. Truly a fine player and he shows how the Kirk Sand guitar is supposed to sound. I came home and played my K S but it just didn't sing for me like Richard's does. Ah, the story of my life.
