Readers of Webhost Magazine www.webhostmagazine.rocks will probably remember that we featured the guitarist Pat Pietracupa in early 2016. Here’s an update on what Pat has been up to musically in the last two years.
Although still playing from time to time in bands, Pat has decided to focus his time and energy on creating original music and adding to his already substantial repertoire. As of October 2017 his repertoire of original music now spans over 78 instrumental songs. The songs range from classical guitar compositions through to rock style arrangements.
In addition to being heard on numerous internet radio stations, his music can be found on all major music sharing sites (Fandalism, Reverbnation, Facebook, Youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud, Audiomack to name a few). You probably heard some of his music without knowing it if you’ve played online adventure games or have on occasion seen online film productions.
When listening to Pat’s music you will notice his style closely resembles that of Carlos Santana. Pat says he grew up listening and taking apart every record Carlos issued throughout the early 1970’s and 1980’s. Pat indicates; “Carlos’ musical style is ingrained in my musical DNA now.
“Although I have my own unique style of guitar playing, many of my progressions have snippets of Carlos’ style thrown in. When you learn to play like your guitar hero early on in your life its very difficult to move away from it as you get older.” says Pat
Its always there in voice or technique throughout your original guitar compositions” Pat’s other major influences include Eric Clapton, Gary Moore and David Gilmour. His main influences on the classical guitar side are Matteo Carcassi and Fernando Sor.
So what’s next for Pat? He plans to continue to focus on bringing his original music to audiences around the world. Pat says that music is the international language that touches the mind and the soul. No better way to bring people together than with sharing and enjoying music together!
