I'm an Italian musician born in Sardinia in 1973. I've used to play electric guitar and bass for nearly 30 years and 6 years ago I started to play classical guitar. I love every nice music, from everywhere and for everytime Italian, English, Spanish, French, Argentine, etc. I’ I started playing the guitar 30 years ago. The guitar is part of Sardinian culture that comes from years of Spanish rule that have left indelible marks in the language, customs and traditions. I play different styles of music (rock, funky, pop, classical) with various band and artists, and play different stringed instruments (classical guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar). I made two records. A pop-rock album called “10 Ideas”, where I played all the instruments and mixed and mastered tracks. The other album of classical guitar called “Nylon”.
