Please e-mail me regarding any mistakes I may have made on this page. My English is far from perfect. I'm a Computer Science/Electrical Engineering graduate from Wroclaw University (it's a famous university in Poland). My specialty is software engineering. My main hobby is music - I have been making music for 15 years now. I first started as an accordion and piano player while in a six-year music school in Ostrzeszow.
When I was in fifth grade, I took up the guitar. At first I played rock music - I liked Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, Marty Friedman, etc. I had my own band and we gigged frequently, on occasion opening for famous Polish bands like Houk or Armia. When I was 18, I started to play the guitar with the two-hand tapping technique. At about this time I went to a concert and saw this famous Polish guitar player called Partyzant.
He plays using the two-hand tapping technique also. I was blown away by his music. In school, I learned many polyphonic pieces by J.S. Bach. I liked this type of music, but I couldn't play the entire work when I was just starting to play the guitar (using standard techniques).
I could only play one track (either the left or the right hand side of a piano transcription). However, when I employed the two-hand tapping technique, I could play the entire piece. I have been using the two-hand tapping technique for ten years now. I use a 6 string hand-made guitar. I also play a special tap-guitar, made according to my own specifications (doubleneck). Currently I play with my jazz trio (tap-guitar, bass and drums).
We play jazz standards and our own compositions. I play classical music too - I like to listen Bach, Chopin and Beethoven, but in the future I want to play only Bach tunes - this is what I like.
