The musical edge


“The difference between the ordinary and the extraordinary is that extra 10%”

Bradley Sugars.

Millions and millions of people all around the world can play the guitar. What makes YOU special then? What makes you stand above the crowd? What makes you into a musician who influences people and “fills buckets” and not one who’ll be forgotten as soon as you leave the place?

Music for me is all about having fun, but if on top of that you want to be a guitarist and a musician who really interests the listeners, gives pleasure and remains memorable to those who surround you when you play your instrument, you can walk the extra mile and have some unique “features” to your music.

Stop and think - what is it that makes YOU special as a musician?

“Consume those ‘popular’ things, and you’ll be part of the common average pack. But that’s ordinary. There’s nothing wrong with ordinary. I just prefer to shoot for the extraordinary.”
