ABOUT

My name's Freddy Renteria. You can find me on sound cloud and you tube under that name. I sing, play guitar, violin, and harmonica. I'm looking to do mostly standards on acoustic instruments and maybe switch instruments and roles and do the occasional original tune by you or me. Just go to my you tube channel to see what I'm talking about. The ultimate goal is to always be busy playing trying to make some dough. Maybe that won't happen but let's see. I don't drive, though, which I understand might be a hassle but we'll figure that out.

EQUIPMENT

Low-end stuff: a 12 string acoustic guitar, a 6 string acoustic guitar, a sound hole pick-up, a fiddle, and a couple of harmonicas(A and C) for now. I record everything on an outdated version of Garageband on my outdated laptop using an interface thingy. I've got a real dog and pony show here. I can get my hands on some gear if and when I/we get my/our shit together.
