A tenured staff member of Garrison Music Store (previously known as Sigler Music), he is the reason that Forth Smith is the centralized hub for purchase, repair, and modification of guitars, banjos, mandolins, etc. The scope of Jimmy’s knowledge in this field is well-respected; people have been known to travel many miles to benefit from his expertise.
Jimmy also serves as an on-staff musician at Community Bible Church in Ft Smith.
Most importantly, Jimmy’s sense of musicianship as well as his lead guitar speed and accuracy is unmatched. He has an excellent ear for timing and “feel.” Jimmy is an exceptional support musician, coming up with chord progressions in incredible variety — all in line with the spirit of the song.
