Musician

Uffe Steen

Born:

Danish guitar-virtuoso and local hero, Uffe Steen, is slowly but surely making his presence felt on the internet with his absolutely breathtaking chops and imaginative playing. As a lefty, growing up with only a right hand guitar around, Steen wasted no time – he just flipped it and got busy playing upside down. By the time he learned that the strings were supposed to go the other way, he was already neck-deep in developing his own style. This pragmatic approach to the instrument might be part of what makes his playing so unique. As a young man, Steen actually studied the clarinet, not the guitar, at the Royal Academy of Music in Denmark. Luckily for us, he chose to devote his attention to the guitar after finishing his studies
