Pamai Chirdkiatisak

Born:

The beginning of his musical career was from the old cassette-tape days when his father introduced him to a rock album in secondary school. As young as he was, the sound of the electric guitar was nothing like he had ever heard before. The more he listened to it the more he was determined that this was going to be his instrument.

He aspired to become a guitarist, formed a rock band in secondary school, and that later led him onto a major turning point in his life – to join the prestigious pre-college music program at College of Music, Mahidol University. Consequently, Chirdkiatisak graduated with a Bachelor of music in Jazz Performance at College of Music, Mahidol University in 2014, and then became a guest instructor in Jazz department at the same university until 2017

Guy Van Duser

Born:

"I'm kind of the oddball. I'm here because a lot of people are curious about this technique, fingerstyle. I show them how to take melodies on the guitar—solo line melodies—and play those melodies while playing the chords at the same time. You're trying to get two layers going. You're using mostly your thumb just to play the lower notes of the chord while the fingers pick out the melody notes on the upper strings. The fingerpickers do that in such a way that the thumb is alternating back and forth on the string, being the rhythm as well. So I'm not just playing the chord under the note, I'm recreating a beat: boom-chick, boom-chick, boom-chick." "I teach guitar arranging for songwriters and the Chet Atkins advanced skills lab

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
