Aculturated in the rich desert heritage of Arizona, northern Mexico (Sonora and Chihuahua), and New Mexico, the native sounds of Mariachi, norteno, and Marty Robbins echo in George McClure's music, as well as his childhood Classical and world music. George learned Western swing in Arizona and New Mexico bars and clubs while playing banjo and bass for a living. "We couldn't get off the stage without playing a few Bob Wills and Texas swing numbers", George says. "And we had a guy in our band who grooved on all the swing. The complex chords and structures thrilled me." A little later in Carolina an old black bluesman (who had toured with Lightnin' Hopkins) showed George a few chords and positions on guitar - This now forms the basis of George's music.
