Brian (Guitar) Brian Zhang is a musician that belongs to a small, but booming community and scene of “modern acoustic fingerstyle” guitarists all around the world. Essentially, modern fingerstyle guitar is the incorporation of extended playing techniques on the acoustic guitar including slapping, tapping, as well as hitting the body of the guitar to create different percussive sounds. All these techniques are blended in together to create all elements of a song (bass, melody, rhythm, drums) into the one solo arrangement. This allows him to approach playing the guitar and music holistically, and therefore adapt and change to all types of genres, styles and situations whenever needed! Last year during his world trip, Brian met and learnt from an number of renowned guitarists including the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, Don Ross, Andy McKee, Calum Graham, Antoine Dufour, Maneli Jamal and Mike Dawes.
Since graduating high school in 2015, Brian has turned his attention to utilising fingerstyle as a means to create arrangements of his favourite songs, along with composing songs that personifies his life experiences and journey in musical form. In 2016, Brian took a risk and opted not to accept an offer into university, but instead, began studying one on one with some of his biggest musical idols, whilst also dedicating more time to teaching aspiring guitarists around Sydney. In the winter of 2017, Brian set off on a world trip, travelling to countries including The Netherlands, England, USA and Canada, with the goal of meeting his biggest heroes and learning from them first hand, including the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, Don Ross, Andy McKee, Calum Graham, Antoine Dufour, Maneli Jamal and Mike Dawes.
