Hello there! My name is Emilio, 31 from Italy. I'm an acoustic percussive fingerstyle guitar player and aspiring singer-songwriter. Apple Certified Pro (Logic Pro X 10.4 - Professional Music Production Software) since Feb 11, 2019 - with a score of 96.25 % (77/80). http://www.apple.com/certification/verify -- Credits: Igor Presnyakov, Iossa --
My name is Emilio, and I was born in Italy in 1987.
I graduated with a university degree in engineering, but I just can't live without music.
Music really is my life.
My approach is to listen to songs again and again, practising and arranging them by ear.
I gained my experience and expertise both from the Internet and the street: I love going busking as well!
I love arranging pop/acoustic music on my acoustic guitar and I use my percussive fingerstyle technique for this.
I've always been self-taught, picking something up from my cousin, my brother. and friends, and above all watching as many videos as I can of the world’s greatest guitarists.
I started learning the piano when I was ten years old, and I did that for just two years.
Then, in 2004, when I was 16, I tried the electric guitar of a friend of mine, and that was it! I fell in love with the guitar.
So I took a few Jazz Guitar lessons .
In June 2015, I started studying Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitar with USA guitarist and teacher Adam Rafferty.
After 12 years working on covers, in 2015 I felt I was ready to work on my own music.
I’m Certified Apple Pro with Logic Pro X 10.4 Music Production Software, and this has really helped me with the creative process.
What more can I say? I just hope you enjoy my stuff.
Music Makes Me Breathe.
Bye all :)

Emilio is a very talented musician with outstanding skills and tastes. This my pleasure to collaborate with him. Hope we will work together soon.
Great player and great-sounding guitar. His recording was well-mic'd, crystal-clear and free of room colouring. He knows what he's doing and what producers need. His work ethic and professionalism were astounding - he'll practise and practise and check in with you regularly. Highly recommended, would happily use again.
