Teachers and/or influences? I have listened to lots of people that had a great influence on the way I write and play music; to name a few: Shakti
, the following words of wisdom: "Try to think of the music you make as nice ways of moving from silence to silence." It remains part of the way I've written and played music ever since. In our world we are so over-killed with sound, the silence seems to be the strongest chord a musician can hit. In recent years I feel even more sothat the way we play each note is more important than how many notes we play; in other words, music needs to be beautiful not difficult.
Perhaps even more influential are the people I've played with throughout the years.
I knew I wanted to be a musician when... I started playing guitar for fun in my teens and very quickly it took over my life to the point that I could not think of anything else to do with my life. The joy of improvisation was and still is what got me into it. The musical dialog between musicians as a social art form and a way of communication always fascinated me, and from the first few months playing guitar I knew that was what I'd be doing.
