  Steve Pappas is a vital, 'righteous' six-stringer from Boardman, Ohio (USA) who reveals his style as acoustic/fingerstyle/world, as one can clearly experience on his latest album, "Refuge". photoHis favorite guitars include a Takamine EC132 and an Asturias JM15. Pappas has played guitar since 1974, and freely declares his career aspiration, "To continue to write, and record my own compositions/arrangements for fingerstyle guitar."

When requested to divulge his ultimate effect for the guitar, Pappas came back with, "Digital reverb," and then pointed out his musicial goals, "I want to express my emotions and experiences through each piece." He fervently hopes to one day study historical instruments such as the lute, and is at this time listening to Stevan Pasero, David Qualey and Gene Bertoncini. His primary fulfillment? "When a listener tells me that they wish my music would never stop playing," he affirms categorically.

Pappas concludes by listing continuing and future undertakings succinctly, by saying, "During the day I teach music in the public school.  I maintain a studio for private instruction and I practice my instrument daily.  To complete a Christmas CD in 2002."

Guitar Nine visitors have compared the playing style and/or musical approach of Steve Pappas to guitarists such as Scott Campbell and others.
