Biography

There are at least two artists with the name Peter Finger:
1) a German acoustic guitarist
2) a DJ and musician, originally from Adelaide, Australia

1) Peter Finger (born in Weimar, Germany in 1954) is a German acoustic guitarist. Raised in a musical family (his father was a conductor), Finger began studying the violin and piano at age six. As a teenager, Finger’s growing talen on the classical violin earned him the first price of the prestigious Jugend Musiziert (Youth Playing Music) competition twice, but it was on another instrument that he would soon get recognized as one of its most creative ambassadors. Having initially discovered the guitar as a way to rebel against his parents’ musical ideals, he had become fascinated with the fingerpickin guitar style that was prevalent during the folk music movement of the 1960’s. Within a couple of years, he had honed his skills to where they got the attention o American guitar legend Stefan Grossman, who immediately signed the 19 year old to his brand-new Kicking Mule Records label. Released in 1974, Finger’s Bottleneck Guitar Solos became one of the labels best selling albums, catapulting the young artist to international acclaim.
Since these early beginnings, Finger has created a musical career full of impressive highlights.

2) Peter Finger (real name Peter Fincher), a DJ and musician, originally from Adelaide, Australia.

    Vor ein paar Jahren irgendwo entdeckt. Seid dem vergleiche ich jedes Gitarrenspiel mit den Liedern von Peter Finger. Egal ob pop, rock oder andere "accoustic guitars". Sehr, sehr deprimierend, denn alle scheitern sie an diesem Maßstab,
