I am the Co-Head of the Instrumental Department at ISINA
When I started playing guitar, I had a desire to play things that weren’t usually played on guitar. I loved what Michael Brecker was playing on the saxophone and what Chick Corea was doing on the keyboard. It was almost impossible to get those kinds of lines out on my instrument. I followed this deep desire that led me to figure out how to play what I heard in my head on my guitar. It took many, many hours, days, and years to develop my Sweep Picking Technique but I stuck to it and it has given me the freedom to express all my musical thoughts and what was stirring in my soul.
