Influences, Technique and Melodic Development: David “Fuze” Fiuczynski

The connection with David “Fuze” Fiuczynski happened because of Dean Campbell. Dean made a few of David’s guitars – at play in this video – and thought he would be great to meet with for Guitarkadia. And so I did one summer morning in 2010. The result is a 3-part video series no self respecting guitar player should miss. My apologies for taking nearly two years to put them out. The perils of having many projects going in different phases while maintaining a freelance career. It takes a toll on your mental and physical strength and one should not make creative decisions while feeling burnt out. But that’s so 2011. This year brought a breath of fresh air into my life, work, and perspective. One needs to not wait but hunt for inspiration. It’s out there waiting for you!

Listening to Dave again while editing these videos reminded me of how inspiring this meeting had been. If I were to pick a theme that ties together all three videos, based on something Dave said, it would be, “Do your thing, follow your heart.”

Part 1 of 3: Influences, technique, melodic development, and musical language.

Many, many thanks for this. Fiuczynski transmits warmth and soul as an interviewee and musician. He must be a wonderful teacher.
