Date of Birth: Nov, 5th, 1982
Playing guitar since: 1992

My aunt is the only person who plays any musical instrument in my family. She played the guitar and sang when I was a kid but she's not a professional musician. Today, I think that she was a great influence to me. At that time I began to listen to a lot of different music. My father is a musical fan but he doesn't play any instrument.

At age of ten my parents gave me a guitar and I started study with a particular teacher. I had fun playing simple songs. I loved listening to music with my father like Charly Garcia or Pappo's Blues.

In the next eight years, I studied with different private teachers. They let me know bands like Guns N' Roses, Pantera, Sepultura, Megadeth, etc. I was very interested in those bands.

Then, when I was 18 year old I went to the Manuel de Falla's conservatory and began my formal music education. Two years later, I started study with a jazz teacher because I wanted to learn improvisation.

At this moment I'm studying improvisation and Folk music in a Contemporary School of Music where I am studying Tango, Jazz and Folk Music.

Influences
I grew up listening to Charly Garcia, Beatles, Guns n Roses, Queen, Pink Floyd, Rush, Iron Maiden, Ramones, Genesis, Pantera, Sepultura, Megadeth, Metallica, Vai, Satriani, Red hot Chili Peppers and others. I like a lot of music and I think that The Beatles was one of the most important bands for me because I learn so much with them and they makes my very happy with their music.

At GMC
It is very interesting for me to know people around the world and learn together at this site. I think that GMC is a fantastic page because we can exchange information about music.

I'm very glad to be here and for the opportunity to share this space with all of these great guitar players.
