NICOLAS: I think that no words are needed to describe this talented young man. Let me just remind you of what kind of environment he is coming from. Arkansas USA – is a city in which very few people know why guitarists have long fingernails on the right hand, neither that the Spanish Guitar is played WITH FINGERNAILS – instead of USING A PICK…?!?
But Ryan is a living example of how a man can spiritually elevate himself achieving any hights he sets his mind to. And all that he can achieve even in a completely different environment, from the culture he is exploring. Take a look, he plays completely effortlessly, he mastered the compás brilliantly – all hats down, maestro…!
RYAN: the software set of the Loop Players are the most important tools that helped me learn the rhythm, the compás. I was first repeating just the basic pattern for quite a long time, but at one moment – it just came to me, and I just suddenly understood the accents and the very essence of the rhythm. With no exaggeration: The Loop Player Softwares are HANDS DOWN – THE BEST POSSIBLE TOOLS FOR MASTERING THE COMPÁS – EVER CREATED! Nicolas bro, thank you for producing these fantastic databases and these loop sets. The engine with its grid-lines works so well – you can analyze every sample to the detail, and realize that it is a world on its own. The difference between the traditional and your method in counting the accents – is “just 200 years” of advancement apart 🙂
