-Ludwig van Beethoven

"The earth is a conductor of acoustical resonance." -Nikola Tesla

Gitano-
I have been playing guitar for about 9 years and banjo for about 7yrs. I've always been pulled by music in life for as long as i can remember loving all styles and genres. Starting from classical to rock to world influenced and hip hop I love it all. I spread to many styles across the board. My favorite things to play are any type of music that is 100% completely improvised on the spot. I enjoy seeing what the subconscious brings out when the pressure is on. Please comment on the tunes because that is the only way to progress thanks. I use Mixcraft studio and a fairly cheap line-in mic.

Classical Banjo Project October 22, 2010
Taking traditional classical pieces and playing them on banjo but also adding my own flare, style, and improv lines to the pieces. This is a project I have wanted to do for sometime. When I first began to tackle this massive undertaking I did not have the patience, dexterity, and musical intelligence to deal with these extremely intimate pieces and adapting them to an instrument as odd as the banjo was a whole different story. Now years later my dream is finally coming true and only due to grueling diligence that has payed off and I am more than happy with!
