Hello, and welcome to ToneAndQuality, your latest resource for all things guitar.  Maintained by Nashville based freelance musician and writer, Sean Weaver, who’s credits include performances, work, and and sit-ins by invitation with luminaries including the legendary Les Paul, Boots Randolph, Bucky Barrett, Richard Bennett, Ray Flacke, Vince Gill, and the National Summer Guitar Workshop.  As a guitarist, he has been honored by both the Jimi Hendrix family and Home of the Legends Thumbpicking organization for his incessant devotion and detail to the art of both electric rock guitar and classic ’50s Chet Atkins repertoire, at venues ranging from the Washington Center for the Performing Arts to the Ryman Auditorium and NYC’s Iridium.  As a freelance writer, his lessons and/or transcriptions of classic guitar techniques and selections have graced publications including Premier Guitar, Frets, and the Stefan Grossman Guitar Workshop.  As a performer, he is at work on his first solo release slated for release in 2012 and can often be found performing with many of Music City’s finest.

ToneAndQuality is his labor of love, devoted to the development of an online resource for like-minded musicians, record collectors, and aspiring students of rock and roll history in the tradition of his mentor and friend, NACA Campus Lecturer of the Year Barry Drake.

Exclusive articles, interviews, gear and record reviews shall be featured here in addition to reposted content from Sean’s private email list, comprising of thoughtful and engaging offerings on subjects ranging from the guitar-specific to rock and roll history to adventures in record collecting.
