Hi, my name is Zach Hughes and this is where I publish my finger-style guitar tunes. Sometimes people make less sense than my guitar & the melodies that come through it. I have been processing the world through guitar compositions since I was 10. I'm a professional music producer based out of Nashville, TN and I produce these tracks in my spare time. When working with other artists I am often required to include instrumental only versions of songs. For years I have used the file extension "_INST" to name the .WAV and .MP3 files I deliver to artists for their instrumental only versions. So naturally I decided to name my instrumental music artist project INST. I mainly write and record original melancholy & folksy finger-style guitar tunes. However, I also make (what I think are) some of the best guitar based instrumental pop covers in the world. Check them out if you're into it. I always envisioned this project being collaborative. I have had many friends help arrange and write several of these INST tunes. I'd encourage you to reach out and let me know if you want to collaborate with me on an INST release. Email:
