Self-taught multi-instrumentalist, in love with slide guitars, deep groove, rhythm and open tunings, Jim is exploring with his heart the multiple sides of his favorite instruments. He is playing mainly slide guitar (National Tricone, Chaturangui - 22 strings Hindustani Slide Guitar and Hawaiian Weissenborn lap slide guitar), but also sings and plays charango, ukulele, mandolin, epinette des vosges, 6- and 12-string rhythm guitar, n’goni and kora.

Jim’s music is at the crossroads of the music from all over the world. Singing a Skip James blues on a Hawaiian guitar, with sounds inspired by the classical music of India - that is a good illustration for his love of the mixtures of musical flavors of the world.

Jim is drawing inspiration from a diverse field of cultures to create new musical emotions with stringed instruments. Jim is influenced by every rhythm from each country or continent.

Jim Petit is endorsing Diamond Bottlenecks “Ultimate” bottlenecks and “Lead Cristal” tone bars.
