Today we are having a quick chat with a guitarist from Spain Christian Sans. He has a few performances and songs to share with us.
Christian Tell us about your History as a Guitarist and performer?
I start to play guitar when I was 14. By listening to bands like Metallica, Black Sabbath, Misfit’s, Hamlet, I developed my liking for this instrument and the music. In the beginning, I only played their songs and I especially liked to play Metallica songs. Now I play other stuff but still enjoy these groups.
goals set for yourself on the musical level?
The main thing for me is to keep enjoying music and playing. I would love to perform in bars, pubs, and other events. Professionally, keep playing my favorite musicians and at the same time also go on with my own songs and compositions.
So you write your own material?
Yes, I do. I have a musical Proyet with other guys. Some Acoustic music progressive rock. Metal, flamenco, folk, and salsa music. I was playing in other bands writing my own material.
As a working Musician what do you prefer to use Guitar and gear wise?
I have a good Tanglewood guitar at the moment but I would really love a Martin acoustic and a good busking amp. Busking in Dublin is great apart from the Rain so I will probably need some kind of Waterproof Busing Amp lol.
Since being involved in music have you had any funny or crazy experiences while performing to the puBlic
I remember one time I was playing with a group of stoner metal in my hometown in Asturias in a performance and I was very drunk and
high on LSD, towards bad weather the power went out and the generator and the music stopped and I continued playing for a few seconds, I lost the sense of where I was.
Many people set a five year plan in the business , where do you want to see yourself in that time?
I hope to see myself still busking playing in a band, composing songs, and overall enjoying the guitar as I have always done.
Who are your favorite influences?
Syd Barret, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Nick Drake as you can see in the videos, Neil Young, Hendrix, Rosendo, and Triana are Spanish bands that influenced my guitar playing. But this is a great group from Spain. I would like to share if you want to learn something about Spanish guitar bands’ styles. I also recommend Triana, leño, barricada, which are good bands from Spain that influenced my guitar playing styles
