He quickly took to the guitar, bass, and piano and after a few years, the acoustic guitar. In his late teens, he found interest in instrumental acoustic fingerstyle music and pursued emulating the intricate styles of such artists as David Chun, Kotaro Oshio, Sungha Jung, and others who are blazing a new path in acoustic guitar music.
