“I’ve never known a musician who regretted being one. Whatever deceptions life may have in store for you, music itself is not going to let you down.”

Today we feature guitarist Austin Moorhead a two-time finalist at the Guitar Foundation of America International Competition and, of course an awesome and passionate player. Here’s Mr. Moorhead performing Sergio Assad’s Fantasia Carioca.
Wow, that’s a really nice piece, both in playing and composition. That is inspiring…thanks! Any idea what kind of guitar Austin’s playing in the video?
