"Az Samad is THE Malaysian guitar hero. Not only is he an incredibly soulful and accomplished player, he is a talented and well respected educator in all aspects of the guitar. He is also a super nice guy with a wicked sense of humour. Miss him at your peril!" - Mike Dawes, English Virtuoso Fingerstyle Guitarist & Recording Artist with Candyrat Records
DID YOU AZ WHO I AM? My name is Az. I write music, tell really bad lame jokes, and teach guitar. I used to live in Berkeley, California and am now back in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Since I've been back, I've:
  • Performed as a soloist for the Distant Worlds: Music From Final Fantasy concert with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra
  • Released homemade indie solo guitar recordings: 1 album & 2 EPs
  • Organized a 9-installment open mic series that helped many young musicians get a start in the local scene
If you would like to be a part of the creative process, you can be my Patron! 

WHAT KIND OF SONGS? The songs you'll get will range from solo acoustic fingerstyle guitar pieces to layered electric guitar explorations. 
Every note he plays comes from a place of deep musical knowledge and understanding. He can use his guitar to say "I love you" in 17 languages."
Jon Gomm, UK Acoustic Singer-Songwriter and Virtuoso Guitarist

Wow! You are EPIC with like #epic as a hashtag. 

You'll get an hour-long Google Hangout with me every time I release a new song. We can talk about guitar, how to write songs, guitar pedals and gear, fingerstyle guitar technique, jazz composition, the art of creating a really bad lame joke, and most music related things.

And of course, you get all the other cool rewards too! =)

I'm buying this cool software to design better chord diagrams for the guitar lesson handouts I make!
