Andres Osorio Toledo:
I started playing at the age of nine and I studied at the "Academia Latinoamericana de Guitarra" where I took classical music training for four years based on Walter Piston and Juaquin Zamocois.When I was 13 I took personal lessons for five years with the best colombian guitarist at that time (Juan Carlos Ramirez- Knuto). These lessons were focused on 80's virtuosity and technique development.At 18 I took lessons on oboe in the (Sinfonica Juvenil de Colombia). When I left I formed a Heavy Metal band called Sanleslot for three years. This proyect recorded a single called Depresion.I attended several guitar clinics based on Richie Kotzen, Jennifer Batten and Calentano techniques among others.I studied harmony and jazz improvisation, and taught jazz harmony and special rock guitar techniques at the Universidad Unilatina for two years. During this period I created the "symetry for scales and chords that doesn't belong to a progression", "Chromatism between modal systems and regional scales" , "Alternate Picking Mode", "Exotic Linal Chords", "Stretching Legato". All of this material will be out in a book later 2004.In 2001 I signed a contract with WASHBURN GUITARS and recorded/produced a progressive rock CD called "The Burning Glass Project" I recorded for this album guitars, bass, keyboards, sitar, and percussion/computer programming.In May 2003 I signed a contract with Digitech. At this time I'm doing clinics to promote WASHBURN, Randall and Digitech products,Upcoming projects include a commercial CD with singer Tattiana Kallman.
