Canadian guitar player Michael Vigano submitted his six-song demo CD-R project, which features a variety of rock, acoustic and experimental pieces in an instrumental setting. Vigano hooked up with pianist/bassist/guitarist Steve Norman and percussionist Tony Tabora to record the tracks on his demo, which are heavy on the riffs and hot-wired improvisation. All the tracks were recorded with a Fender Strat, a Line 6 amp, a Crate amp and a Shure 57 microphone. An experienced outside producer could certainly help present the music in a better light, but as a demo it probably serves the purpose well enough. Some of the more experimental pieces, such as "Arabian Nightmare" probably hold more promise, needing just a bit more self-editing to truly capture a special performance. Keep coming up with the unusual here, and good things will probably happen.
Michael started playing the guitar at the age of sixteen. He started listening to artists such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and soon responded to the advanced guitar work being put forth by players like Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. Michael then listened to a wide variety of guitar-oriented music from artists as diverse as Van Halen to Scott Henderson, on which he based he current style and approach to guitar playing. He played in various cover and original bands, including Marcel Gangon (Juno award nominee).
Vigano has several goals. His priority is to promote his music and hopefully garner the support of a record company or a management organization. Vigano is also available to do session work, and he also is open to joining a band. Ultimately, he would like to be involved in the music business as a guitarist or a composer.
