Born: September 1, 1971    Primary Instrument: Guitar

My passion for music started early, when I was 4 years old, I think. I remember my uncle Mario putting me on his lap and trying to show me the instruments in the orchestra: Look Du, this is a here come the French horns...notice how he repeats the theme only with the strings...look how the flute dialogs with the oboe...I didn�'t understand anything, but I loved music!

My mother liked Chico Buarque, Elton John and Nina Simone a lot. My father liked Bach, Beethoven and Vivaldi. I liked Os Saltimbancos, Pica Pau Amarelo and Toquinho and Vinicius.

At the age of six I got a walkman from my father and that was really important! From this moment on I started to listen to music non-stop, not even to sleep, I slept listening to music. Many times my mother would remove the earphones when I was already asleep. I remember loving Djavan, Milton and Stevie Wonder....

Sorry, no recommendations at this time.

I use 011 strings from D'addario in my Fender strat. The signal leaves the guitar and is soon divided in two by Boss digital delay. One goes to a Boggie Table and the other to Jazz Chorus, I believe this combination amazing! For me the sound has to be very clean and loud. I have always been crazy about Boogie Table for having this fat and hot timbre; it even gives me a slight saturation. Now, the Jazz Chorus gives me other half of the timbre, well-defined harmonics and shine. One of the things I like in this timbre is that it is well defined even when it's very loud, allowing me to solo with chords. I have also been using a semi-acoustic, YAMAHA SA2100, in which I use D'addario chromes 012 strings.
