  Steve Pappas is a nimble-fingered and unmistakable musician/guitarist currently based in Boardman, Ohio (USA) who denotes his playing style as acoustic/fingerstyle/world, as one might want to hear on his most recent recording, "Refuge". photoHis workhorse guitars consist of a Takamine EC132 and an Asturias JM15. Pappas has been playing guitar since 1974, and truthfully shares his career objective, "To continue to write, and record my own compositions/arrangements for fingerstyle guitar."

When the attempt was made to uncover his definitive or preferred effect for the guitar, Pappas purposefully responded with, "Digital reverb," and then volunteered his musicial goals, "I want to express my emotions and experiences through each piece." He keeps open the possibility to, at some point, study historical instruments such as the lute, and is at the moment listening to Stevan Pasero, David Qualey and Gene Bertoncini. His most important gratification? "When a listener tells me that they wish my music would never stop playing," he muses emphatically.

Pappas winds up by detailing long-term and forthcoming endeavors insightfully, 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.
