Tres guitar player

I'm surprised Victor "Chino" Trias wasn't mentioned as one of the premier tres players. He played for Roberto torres and in several Latin bands in New York when a musician's union card was checked at the door before any gig. He's amazing and is still playing at 83 years old.

Re: Tres guitar player

I have added information for Victor Trias and also updated information for Tony Velez. If anyone has additional suggestions for tres players let me know.
