Guitarist myself, passionate about the music of my time and this magical instrument. The guitar is a rather difficult instrument to play. I discovered this instrument around the age of 14, since I always wanted to play it and find my own style. Unfortunately I am not a Vertuose, but I really appreciate those who have a unique talent. I absolutely had to share my favorites with you and draw up a list of my best acoustic guitarists who inspired me. Since I like blues, finger picking, folk Celtic music. I simply wanted you to discover his unique talents which for those who appreciate the guitar will find a great source of inspiration.
