After playing guitar for many years I finally took it upon myself to improve my musical knowledge as well as my guitar playing skills. I searched the internet high and low for information that would help me become a better musician .... this quest for knowledge has led me to Gianca and his web site. Here you will find a wealth of FREE information as well as many interesting articles that will help any aspiring guitarist. Whether you are a beginner or someone who has been playing for 30 years as I have, then this site is a must!!! Thank you Gianca for all of your efforts which I might add, are presented clearly.
