Roland GK 13-Pin to ¼ inch guitar cable adapter

Hey all, I thought I’d share with you that I successfully built a Roland GK 13-Pin to ¼ inch guitar cable adapter.  This is a cable that allows you to connect a guitar or other instrument with a ¼ inch output (bass, ukulele, etc.) to the Roland GR-55 guitar synthesizer.  If you are on a gig using the Roland GR-55 the usefulness of this is that if you don’t have another amplifier and effects, you can access the Roland COSM effects and amp models within the GR-55 and use the same sound...

More about Freddie King

Hi all, Here's some more about Freddie King: Between the three “Kings”, Albert, BB and Freddie, it was Freddie who had the hardest driving, most intense sound.  Much of his intensity came from the way he played:  He picked with his fingers, using a plastic thumb pick along with a metal index-finger pick with a large amp cranked to the max.  Although he was a good singer and had some big hits including vocals, especially, “Have You Ever Loved a Woman”, it was with his instrumentals that, I...

Freddie King

Freddie King has become one of my most favorite electric blues artists!  Before I did a deep dive into the blues I was aware of his name, that he existed, but that was about it.

About Freddie Freddie was born in Gilmer, Texas in 1934 and his birth name was allegedly Frederick Christian, but I have also read that it was Fred King....

A Quick Intro to Christopher J.

I am Chris Hartzog and this is my website, Christopher J. Music.  I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in the Seattle, Washington area.

I’ve loved music as long as I can remember.  During many years of being a special needs parent to a very high needs child with autism, I started playing guitar again and started writing music.  And through that experience I learned that music not only transcends languages, it also transcends disabilities.

Today my music covers a variety of styles and instruments from folk to blues/jazz, and classical to pop-rock. I am a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, bass (electric and upright), ukulele, keyboards, and a singer and songwriter.  I also enjoy playing classical music on the double bass with my local community symphony orchestra.  And, I write, arrange, record and produce songs and put them on this website for people to download and hopefully share and enjoy.
