I started playing guitar around year 2000. The headmaster of the primary school I went to was a guitarist, and he saw that I had a thing for the music. It started out with him trying to teach me some chords and scales in the school kitchen, during the classes where we could choose our own subjects.
This evolved to a very strong passion for music, and the guitar as an instrument. I was very courious, and kept on practicing to reach my goal, which was to be able to play what I felt like.
Now, as a musician who is writing songs, playing concerts and working on recordings, I often think of the times as a kid, sitting in my dads bed room playing along to the old The Shadows records. Now I'm the one making music for others to listen. It's fantastic!
I do a lot of live concerts. Some of them in larger venues than others, but mostly where there's a crowd of anything between 50-1000 people. There are a lot of special moments, so it's hard to pick something that's more special than the others.
Everything. I'm influenced by the people around me, the nature and every single bit of music I'm listening to. But if I would have to say something here, I'd mention Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Chet Atkins, The Edge/U2, The Shadows.. but I can go on forever with this list!
