      Get to know Michael S

      My name is Mike Solarczyk.  I play pretty much anything with a string attached to it.  My First love was the Violin.  I studied in public school and pursued it in college as well.  I am amazed at what incredible sounds the violin can produce.  When I first heard Bazzini's "Round of the Goblins" I could not believe that the violin could do those things. Left hand pizzacato, atrificial harmonics, riccochet bowing, and a slew of other techniques that were foreign to me.  I then found Paganini.  Wow.  Insanity! Lately guitar has been my instrument.  I play mostly classical.  I am a finger picker.  I love that style.  I feel that the guitar is very much like a piano.  With a piano you can play chords, melody and even sing over it all at the same time.  With the guitar, especially with finger style you can do the same thing.  I like artists like Michael Hedges and Leo Kottke.  I listen to pretty much everthing.  I like classic rock and the jam band scene mostly.  Phish, Dave Matthews Band, Umphries Mcgee, Etc.  Trey Anistasio is one of my guitar heros.  Older Pro-rock is another big part of my collection.  Old Genesis, Gentle Giant, Yes, and Jethro Tull are on the rotation in my ipod.
