Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California, United States (1947 – present)
Christopher Parkening (born 14 December 1947) is an American classical guitarist.
Parkening was born in Los Angeles, California, and pursued music in part because of his cousin Jack Marshall, a studio musician in the 1960s.

By the time he was 19, he had won a number of competitions and was touring and recording extensively.
