Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Date of Birth: april 26th 1972
Been Playing Guitar Since: 1980
I started to play when I was 8 years old, my first steps were playing Argentinian folk songs, at 12 years old I heard about Beatles, then Iron Maiden, Scorpions and...I fell in love with hard rock and heavy metal so I had to get an electric guitar.
Most of the things I learned it was by myself - nevertheless I took some guitar lessons and one of the most important things. I took harmony and composition lessons, since then I've been learning by myself a lot of styles, analyzing, transcribing e.g some classical stuff and Argentinian folk music, tango music,specially Astor Piazolla's stuff, hard rock, progressive, pop, Brazilian music, etc. I've just analyzed and I keep doing it, anything I find interesting.
Playing and Influences
It's a long list so here just some of them: Piazzolla,Beatles,Van Halen,Cacophony,Vinnie Moore, Satriani,Vai, Maalmsteen,David Gilmour, Paul Gilbert,John Petrucci,Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Chopin etc.
I have found this site amazing and very helpful, I wish it had existed when I started to play guitar, everything would've been easier.
