Oscar Florentino Tellez,

56, one of San Antonio's best known bajo sexto players who was a regular with the Grammy-winning Texas Tornados, died Sunday in a one-vehicle traffic accident near Cotulla, Texas.

Mr. Tellez taught himself to play music as a small boy. By his teens, he had learned to play the bass, drums, accordion, the keyboard and the bajo sexto, a Mexican bass guitar that resembles a 12-string guitar.
