Coco Montoya, a lefty who plays his “icy hot” guitar style on an upside-down, right-handed guitar like Albert King, never took one lesson. A self-taught guitarist, Montoya learned by mirroring some of the best guitarists of his time, with artists like King who taught him, “Don’t think about it, just feel it.” His heartfelt musical style caught the ear of John Mayall at a bar gig, and Montoya was recruited to his band to follow in the footsteps of former Bluesbreaker guitarists like Eric Clapton, Peter Green and Mick Taylor. Montoya plays solo on Friday, Nov. 1, at Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8:30pm. $17. 707.829.7300.
