  Steve Pappas is a unmistakable, vibrant guitarist from Boardman, Ohio (USA) who describes his style as acoustic/fingerstyle/world, as demonstrated on his latest release, "Refuge". photoHis guitars of choice consist of a Takamine EC132 and an Asturias JM15. Pappas has played guitar since 1974, and clearly states his career goal, "To continue to write, and record my own compositions/arrangements for fingerstyle guitar."

When prompted to reveal his favorite effect for the guitar, Pappas replied, "Digital reverb," and offered his musicial goals, "I want to express my emotions and experiences through each piece." He would love to someday study historical instruments such as the lute, and is currently listening to Stevan Pasero, David Qualey and Gene Bertoncini. His greatest satisfaction? "When a listener tells me that they wish my music would never stop playing," he states unambiguously.

Pappas lists ongoing and upcoming projects thusly, "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.
