'Skunk' Baxter ignites crowd at MARS clinic

Jeff "Skunk" Baxter & Bobby Cochran @Mars Music guitar clinic

It was "standing room only" April 15th at the MARS Music superstore in Nashville, TN, as legendary guitarist and Epiphone endorsee Jeff "Skunk" Baxter of Steely Dan and Doobie Bros. fame conducted one of his equally famous clinic / workshops / performance / rap-sessions. Performing with his signature Epiphone acoustic/electric featuring the new made in the USA Epiphonic-Six electronics, Baxter entertained the enthusiastic crowd with not only some blistering lead solos but also with "the art of great rhythm guitar playing".

Accompanying him was renown session guitarist Bobby Cochran (nephew of Eddie Cochran, "Summertime Blues") also playing a Jeff Baxter acoustic/electric. Bobby is also known for his work with Leon Russell, Steppenwolf, Flying Burrito Bros., and Bobby and the Midnights with Bob Weir, Billy Cobham, Alphonso Johnson, Dave Garland and Kenny Gradney..

In addition to some great music, Baxter fielded questions from the audience and covered a number of topics ranging from his work with Steely Dan and the Doobies to insights into the world of session work to his work with the Department of Defense. The one-and-a-half hour clinic with the Epiphone endorsee was just one of the many appearances Baxter makes every year promoting Epiphone. As always, stay tuned for updates regarding the "Skunk" coming to your town.
