He got into the acoustic guitar after seeing an inspiring performance by Preston Reed. The artists that influence his compositional style are; Michael Hedges, Don Ross, Billy McLaughlin and Preston Reed.

    He uses Andrew White, Avalon, McCollum, and soon Greenfield guitars. He also uses his McCollum baritone and Spillers harp-guitar. He uses Dean Markley Alchemy Gold/Bronze medium gauge. He often experiments with altered tunings.

    Andy McKee is mainly a self-taught guitarist. He never studied music at a formal level (e.g. University), but has had a few electric guitar lessons early on. Through those lessons and self-study, he picked up knowledge about chord construction and scales and modes.

    He is most famous the YouTube video of him playing his song “Drifting” live. It has garnered over 32,000,000 views worldwide. URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ddn4MGaS3N4
