Student Instructor

Name: Roger

Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Date of Birth: 22 November 1975

Been playing guitar since: 2007 (also played in the '90s a bit)


I've been playing the guitar seriously since 2007 (with also some less serious playing back when I was 16-17). Besides playing the guitar, I have always been involved in playing music (piano, keyboards, drums), which certainly is helpful for rhythmic feeling etc. In 2008 I started my own band together with two other persons, which gives a nice boost in my playing abilities as well.

I have been influenced by many guitarists over the years, of which the following ones in particular:

  • BB King
