Jim Ivler, from Davis, California is another accomplished and versatile musician with a "day job." He studied classical guitar in college, left music while pursuing a career in the administrative side of law enforcement, but then rediscovered guitar-playing through the musical artistry of John Renbourn.
Jim brings a classical sensibility and knowledge to the folk guitar idiom, and has done many arrangements for steel-string guitar. He transcribed El McMeen's book for Mel Bay called "Acoustic Guitar Treasures," and transcribed a number of pieces from the "Giving Voice" CD of Tim Alexander and Sandy Shalk.
Jim has recorded, and has for sale, a demo CD (with eight tracks) called "Six-String Serenade" of mainly Celtic music, including the Martin Simpson-esque track ((c) Jim Ivler) accessible at the bottom of this page.
