I got your reference from a good musician.
I am NOT a professional musician, but I can play guitar and sing. I am 67 and played for a number of years with a folk/rock trio in low key venues back in the day.
I want to record a few “future message" tunes ( focus: Forever Young by Dylan and maybe Cats in the Cradle by Chaplin) for my new Granddaughters ( ages 6 months and 14 days) before I become senile some day . I never met my Grandfathers! I live at W 66th by Lincoln Center. Game? 201-805-5984. Cell [ I can afford to pay]
I\'ve been a huge fan of Drew Zingg\'s masterful guitar playing ever since I heard him with Steely Dan. I wasn\'t aware of his solo CD/DVD release until only recently and would like to purchase both in hardcopy. All attempts to reach his website dzdap.com take me to a blank webpage with the text \"403 Forbidden\". I hope you can help me secure a copy of both the CD and DVD. I spread the word of DZ every chance I get and no one has been anything less than floored by how great and creative of a guitar player he is. Here\'s my contact info:

Great Meeting you this week.
I look forward to helping where I can on the Jazz weekend.
I read your Sonicscoop review on the SSL Nucleus and wanted to ask are you still happy with it after this period of time? I found your user review very succinct.
As I am thinking of purchasing the updated Nucleus 2 for my project studio. So any feedback would be appreciated.
George— greetings from NextCapital. It is my wife Rebecca’s 50th surprise b-day party on Dec 2. We are going to go up at “The Cabin" at Trapps. I was wondering if you would be interested in playing. We are going be there from 4-9pm (it is a Saturday)
We would love to have you. 802-760-8436
George- That was nice to come out and hear the group last night.
I have been recording some at Caleb Bronz's tracking studio, in Winooski and I have an easy 4:00 "honkey rap" (2 changes) I've been working on and would like to put you on it. I imagine it would take you 1- 1 /2 hours to track it at Caleb's . I'd pay $80.
Send me an email and I'll send (attach) you the rough of it. Caleb-drums, Eric Hoh-bass, Bart Feller, rhythm guitar.
The session would be after the 4th. We can set a date after then.
i love watching and hearing you play.
thank you for doing shows in small local venues
exciting and motivating
also humbling at the same time.
i've been playting guitars for 50 years and i don't know s##t.
George, I am a San Francisco jazz musician who has a gig coming up with a singer who wants to perform your beautiful song Crescent Moon. I also just sent Bill Block an email asking him if he wouldn't mind sending me the chart for it and thought I should ask you as well. Thanks for considering it. Andy. www.andydudnick.com.
Hi, my friend Patrick Ambrosia who's brother David is someone you've worked with. I just relocated to VT as well, after 26 years of making and repairing guitars in NY. I thought I'd say hi, and start spreading the word. New friends and networks are vital for personal and professional survival! I can tell only great things are ahead. Vermont is such a great place. I hope your relocation here has been wonderful for you, too. Please visit my website at customguitars.com if you'd like! Best, Scott
George! From the long lost Biederman days....cool site you have here, hope all's well. Wondering if you remember a video we did for NYU, where we shot a breif quote from Trump. I remember doing it, and briefing Trump...can only assume you were involved, though I don't remember...
My name is Jerry Ulichny, I am a student up at UVM, currently taking lessons with Joe Capps. I saw you play with Tom Cleary over the summer at Halversons and was really blown away. I have been wanting to find a new teacher, and was wondering if you give lessons? I would love to be able to meet up with you for a session so you can see if I'm at a place where you would be interested in providing me with instruction. Please let me know, I would really love the opportunity.
My name is Christina Pahountis with JAZZIZ Magazine. We received your information into the office this morning and wanted to follow up with you. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to speaking with you.
All the best,
Hey George -
I'm about to start mixing and mastering, and I was wondering if you can suggest the best way to get a good mex. And by that I mean, is there some kind of software or hardware that you use to get a good mix?
Heya George, that was quite a treat hanging out with you and your wife at the show. I hope the show was successful for you. anyway I wanted to get you my contact information you can call or email anytime but no rush. Thanks Marc Rutters 760-594-1407

LOVE this! I totally love how you threw qteuos in there. I love how its barely edgy for a seemly edgy couple..the style all seems to mesh perfectly! Great pictures! http://cjeiktnsfgk.com [url=http://ltgnblj.com]ltgnblj[/url] [link=http://xjqxvmq.com]xjqxvmq[/link]

Not only is she very talented at what she does, i'm proud that she's one of my good friends <3 Thanks Nic!
Dear Mr. Petit,
I just watched "The Drummer" for the first time and enjoyed it very much. I was wondering how I might be able to buy a recording of the song "Beat's Boogie". Do you have an mp3 version of it available? I would love to learn the drum part to the song and play along with the music.
Peux-tu m'envoyer une biographie de toi comme guitariste-compositeur, plus quelques photos de toi à la guitare.
C'est pour faire une maquette de présentation.
Je te parlerai de mon projet dans quelques jours.
I hope this message finds you well... How are things, man?
I am quite fine these days based more in Istanbul and less in NYC, but I still keep an apartment in Brooklyn and come back there every other month.
Anyway, I just recorded my third album. It is a piano trio with electric bass and drums. The exact configutation of the band is:
on 4 of the songs, acoustic piano, electric bass, drums
on 3 of the songs, Rhodes, electric bass, drums
I might add a bonus track which is a live two-track recording of one of the songs. We are looking for a acoustic sound with very little touch to the tones in general. As we used booths, there is no bleed at all. I am looking for a good separation and high sound stage. I am planning to work with Emily Lazar again for mastering. The album will be released in the CD form in the U.S. and as an LP in Europe. Also, I am planning to sell the HD versions of it (44.1-24).
You are still doing the e-mixing thing, I assume. Could you please let me know about your rates and the terms you work under?
Looking forward to hearing from you, man...
I'm finally getting back to you. I love end of august you gave me last summer at your gig with Chris Peterman in Burlington. I've listened to it countless times and it's really great to hear your playing. Of all jazz guitarists I've seen here in town you've been my favorite. Hope you liked Los Ladrones. Last night I had the pleasure of seeing Lisa Fischer in Boston. She and her band were amazing! If you can make it she will be doing 6 shows at Birdland April 23 -25. I highly recommend it. Hope to see you in burlington in June if you get up here. Thanks again, great work!
Hey, how are you doing? We met at the guitar center in West Palm Beach. I ask you who should I listen to as far as guitar player for soloing and etc.
02.22.15David Tkaczuk-Grado PS500's Q.
Hello George :
I read your article on mixing with headphones and specifically the Grado's.
Unfortunately, I can't really justify going for the PS1000's, but, I am considering the PS500's for mixing. The other candidates would be the HD600's, K701's and the Sony MD7509HD's.
Do you have any thoughts on why the Grado's might be a better choice ?
Many thanks !

I just kind of ran into George Walker Petit on FB and finding a new guitarist to admire, to me, is like the old days when I couldn't wait for my favorite groups next album to come out, that same kind of feeling. So he was kind enough to say 'hello' and sent me a link to this wonderful site and I am completely knocked out. I can;t tell you how much I appreciate it.
Great work you did with Bill Block in “The Drummer", an exquisite piece of art that made me burst i tears for my failed (but everlasting) calling for music, jazz and drums, that I was not able to defend in front of family pressures for a more “serious", “normal" and “profitable" living. The results have been catastrophic in my life, but I do not want to bore you any longer with that. I tried unsuccessfully to find a link to Bill Block. Any suggestion there?
Best wishes and keep groovin’!
I read your article about the SSL Nucleus on sonicscoop.com. I was curious to know if you still use it?
Hey've had a tough few months with parents and i un friended you on facebook because some common frinds were feeding me some negative dtuff at a time when i just didn't want any more negatives in my life and I found myself agreeing with them...and that's total bullshit because you have never been anything but a good friend to me! Forgive me for being selfish ,but at the time I just said fuck it..I'll just unfriend him rather than say anything I'l regret latter Goerge, I was angry at the world ,jealous and more and I didn't want to to be a dick and go there so ..i just cut the tie...hope you can forgiver me Bro?
just came across an email from when we worked together-as you said in it-"jeezum crowe-how lon's it been?"
hope all is well with you & yours. are you living in vermont again(all the gigs upcoming)?
i would love to catch up & work with you again. have only been gig-ing in corporate america-faute de necessitie-lol!
Hello George ..
I appreciated your fine review of the Phonitor 2. I am fortunate to have one and originally for headphones, but now introduced it to my main system, between my ps audio dac mk II output and mark Levinson 331 amp.
This is sonically mucho better than running the dac directly into my 331...(despite ps audio stating otherwise, they prefer no preamp, but in now disagree.)
My question is, what are the best settings on the Phonitor 2 as a pre amp? Should I disregard all the matrix and cross feed settings? And I just set the bottom DIP switches to "RCA input level conversion" only..and not "insert loop" ; as that seems to be for the headphone section, correct so far?
I appreciate your excellent review for the headphone section, just need some assistance and your setting recommendations as a preamp.
I don’t usually reach out personally, but as I was browsing through new Kickstarter campaigns yours caught my eye. I usually look through new campaigns to keep up with current trends, and although yours looks good, I can tremendously help you increase visibility to potential, niche targeted backers.
If you’re interested drop me a line and I’ll get back to you within 24h.
We’ve helped raise over 1.1mil for my clients through crowdfunding over the last 18 months alone … I kind of specialize in this…Don’t take my word for, you can learn more here:

Pps. I’m sure you get similar messages all the time… This one will be worth your time to check out.
Saw you gigging at the Smokehouse in Waitsfield last Friday night. You had just killed it on "Blues For Pat," when I spoke with you. You mentioned that your L-5 was custom etc. Anyway, I'm your newest fan. Purchased "End of August" and "Drew Zingg" from CD Baby this morning. I'm also interested in your work with Anthony Wilson, who is awesome! (I've seen him with DK several times.) I'm going to hit you up on FB, and I'd love to try to get you to a place in CT called "The Side Door," a small club in Old Lyme. Have you heard of it? Where and when do you play in NYC? Anyway, thank you again for taking a moment to say hello to a new fan. You are awesome GWP.
George, it was a real pleasure meeting you. My wife says when you get a gig at Jazz Alley in Seattle we will be there. She really likes Brazilian music, me too. You have turned me on to a lot of infromation and listening opps. I bought a copy of Drew Zingg. Great album and i love his guitar tone.
I checked out many of your videos starting with chords, pedals etc. Loved "Monique" with your brother. So much stuff to listen to.
As far as our morning at Rudy's- doesn't get much better than that. I want to keep in touch and wish you all the success you deserve. It is a lot!!!!-Lee
Just set up the office in our new house, poking around FB and clicked on the link. Enjoying the End of August...
saw you on facebook great playing
i checked out your cite
my name is mark...i'm a guitar player here in miami
hope to hear from ya,
Hi George, I Im admiring your guitar skills as i write this email.
great tone great scales, where did you school? also im interested in staring a home studio here in jakarta, I was wondering how you like the ssl nucleus. which im considering and use the xdesk as a summing board.
i look forward to hearing your comments and keep up the great music.
Hey George. Not sure if you had my private e-mail & cell.... just in case you bail on the FB thing. :-) Always a pleasure communicating with you. The Drew Gig was AWSOME! Congradulations!!!
Right so. I've migrated from Facebook to here. It's a sort of 'just in case' measure...
Hey George, I absolutely loved talking with you and Drew on Wed night after the Mike McDonald show. As discussed I am currently planning to work on completing a jazz CD and would love any assistance that you could offer. I would like to complete a project that had a brazillian/bossa/soulful flavor if that makes any sence. I do have some musicians here in Nashville that I could work with and I would love, love, love to work with you or anyone that you would recommend. I do have a song recorded that I would like to share with you and get your feed back. If you would give me a call 770-365-4968 or email me to let me know when I could discuss this further with you. Thank you sooooooooo much for your time and consideration.
P.S. Drew's CD....awesome!
I know you're pretty busy, but I read your review of the SSL Nucleus on Sonic Scoop and was truly impressed. Currently I have the Mackie MCU Pro + 2 Extenders and the main units backilight went out twice now! I was think I might invest in the Nucleus as a replacement. The price is somewhat out of my budget, but I don't want to go through the headache anymore with the Mackie units. Would you say I should sell them and jump head first at the Nucleus? Do you still use it in your studio? Let me know your feedback. And lets build.

I read your rave review on the SSL Nucleus. Gorgeous piece of gear. Something that I'm almost afraid to ask and I have searched high and low for and answer.
Will the SSL "see" any other interface along with its own USB connection?
Perhaps if I run an Apogee Symphony or Orpeus or some such, would I be able to control it from the SSL?
BTW, if this is you playing guitar on your site,,, it's beautiful.
Hi George, this is Cameron Reid again. Our local music school trip was very successfull in New York, thanks for looking into them visiting a real studio, maybe another year ?
Lastly a friend of mine Greg Walker from Manchester may contact you, he is a great musician loves Brazil, he self produced a coupleof cds.
Must go, regards Cameron Reid (Aiglon)
Thanks so much for the call today, I appreciate the great vibe, I look forward to getting together at your conveinence. Love to get into the city any chance I get. Usually toward the end of week or weekend works better for me. I have a few new tunes up on my site if you get a chance, "Radiate" & "Peace and Love" www.koguitar.com
Look forward to speaking soon,
Just finished watching The Drummer and fell in love with it. Two of my kids are drummers and I play trumpet in a big band (over 40 and struggling with the necessity of accountability) so it was very relevant.
Is there anywhere I can purchase the MP3 of Crescent Moon? My searches are failing me.
Dear George, You may not rember me but we were at Aiglon, its been a long time. I live in the east of England, with Louisa my wife and two great children (of course !) The music school my son played at (drums) is hoping to send some musicians to New York end march early April 2012. They are playing in central park and one or two schools in the area. I can't come with them but I wonder if they would be able to see how a professional studio works and visit you ? I know this is asking a lot and I will not be coming but if it was a possibility it would be a fantastic experience for them. They are unaware that I have approached you so if you are committed to other things then there is no problem turning it down. I know I am pushing it a bit as I won't be attending. let me know, I hope you don't mind me asking and I hope that maybe one day I will visit (my wife would love New York)
Thank you for your time etc and please do not worry about not being able to do it. I hope you are well and your music career is thriving. You may not remember but you lent me your copy of GB's Breezin and Jeff becks Blow by Blow. kind regards, Cameron Reid
I met you at our booth at the AES show, you saw the Phoenix Mastering compressor and our Rock active monitors too. I've emailed Jeff at Vintage King to remind him about the Phoenix demo that you requested and I'm also getting in touch if you'd like me to arrange sending a demo pair of The Rock monitors to you too?
Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi George, was spinning about the web and landed her from the article you wrote ab out being a record producer. Just wanted to send you a big hello from Los Angeles. I'm a bassist, composer and lately producing videos for musical ensembles (full orchestras and some smaller group stuff). I've had a varied career as a musician and have also had the pleasure of playing with a lot of musicians from So. America (Argentina, Brazil, Venezeula, Columbia) Central America as well as Europe and the Middle East and Asia. So when I heard your Brazilian tracks my ear listened up a bit more. I really like what I'm hearing and thought I'd write you to let you know. If you're on Facebook, you can friend me if you like at: https://www.facebook.com/Larry.G.Goldman I look forward to hearing more music from you. For now, I'll catch you later... Larry G. Goldman
