Solo guitarist, Matthew Fagan, has
been entertaining Southern Californians since the early nineties.
His authentic acoustic sound is soft and melodic. However smooth
his guitar style may be, it is still not too simplistic as he reveals
his intricate command over the instrument.
Matthew’s particular guitar
style has been coined “fingerstyle”. Fingerstyle method
allows the musician to play the harmony, rhythm, and melody at the
same time. This method brings about a rich interplay of sounds absent
in other guitar techniques. Some of Matthew’s musical influences
are obvious and some are more subtle and range from rock, blues,
new age, jazz and folk.
A recurring response from his fans
is how they listen to the music over and over again as it has such
a soothing effect.
