I messed around with the guitar playing way more than I had to since, like, 12 (thanks dad). My acoustic soon evolved into an electric (thanks again dad).
It took me a while to start doing things properly joining Lizard Accademie music school (big ups for Andrea Caniato and Alberto Rondano). I start messing around with Cubase and get into music production because of Sithu Aye (my first bandcamp purchase), Plini, DMM etc. So in 2015/2016 guitar pro files become projects.
I started the It Yourself Musicians (The Podcast of the bedroom revolution) back in 2018. I was intrigued by a lot Bandcamp musicians (Plini, Sithu, DMM, younameit). I got my Cubase + Focusrite setup up and running and was experimenting with my own stuff.
Of course I was surrounded by amazing musician friends. Was there a better opportunity to grow than ask them all I wanted to know? Yep, the internet is full of wonderful interviews with the greats. While it helped me to know ho Misha Mansoor started my brain dragged me down saying like "well, but it was Misha and you are no Misha. It's not gonna work for you".
