WXTJ Jamz: Tyler Burkhardt

Fingerstyle guitarist Tyler Burkhardt skillfully performs four of his favorite songs live for “WXTJ Jamz.” You can now find the full video on our YouTube channel, along with others from the series.

Tyler Burkhardt is an instrumental fingerstyle guitarist from Richmond, VA who creates the sound of a full band by playing all the parts simultaneously on his acoustic guitar. He first started playing jazz guitar in his middle school jazz band. Eventually, he found himself playing at the college level. In high school, he started experimenting with fingerstyle acoustic guitar, learning to hit, tap, and slap the guitar while playing to create the drumbeat of the song. Tyler was playing at restaurants starting in his sophomore year of high school, but you can now find him performing at different venues all over Virginia. He is currently a fourth year jazz student at UVA and Miller Arts Scholar who enjoys tennis and volleyball in his free time. His inspirations include Andy McKee, Mike Dawes, Calum Graham, and Tommy Emmanuel.
