Lee Ritenour Gets a Little Help From His Friends for ‘6 String Theory’ | Lifestyles | English

Lee Ritenour first learned to play guitar at age eight, and by 16, he was recording with ’60’s pop stars The Mamas and The Papas. His prolific studio work commanded thousands of sessions with the best from jazz, rock, pop and blues, and his dexterity on the guitar earned him the nickname “Captain Fingers.”

Now 58, Lee is the master of ceremonies on “6 String Theory,” working as producer, arranger, composer and performer alongside everyone from Robert Cray and Vince Gill, to Pat Martino, B.B. King and John Scofield. There’s also appearances by bluesmen Johnny Lang, Taj Mahal and Keb’ Mo’; rockers Neal Schon, Joe Bonamassa and Slash; and up-and-coming guitarists Andy McKee, Joe Robinson and Shon Boublil. Earlier this year, Shon won the Grand Prize at Lee Ritenour’s Six String Theory International Guitar Competition.
