Jim's CD-cassette release "The Guitar Man" is designed for kids age 3-10 and mixes education with entertainment as Jim plays and teaches about many different members of the guitar family, including the classical guitar, the steel-string guitar, the 12-string guitar, the lute, the banjo, the mandolin and the electric guitar. 

In April, 2002, Jim released a sequel to "The Guitar Man" titled "A Day with the Guitar Man" featuring many of the instruments from the first recording, but with the addition of three more fretted instruments from around the world, the balalaika, the ukulele and the charango.
