Hi people,
I’m Thorsten from Germany. I work as a fulltime guitarist / musician and would like to share my music, videos and other related stuff with you. 

Here's my BIOGRAPHY:
I started playing guitar at the age of 10 after seeing KISS live in concert. I took classical guitar lessons, taught myself electric guitar techniques and joined my first band INSESSION when I was 14 years old. After years of practise and playing in bands like BIG BROTHER and RIOT ACT I went to the MGI (Munich Guitar Institute) to study jazz/rock guitar. To expand my insight into jazz and improvised music I started to study jazz guitar at the HKA (Highschool of the Arts) in Arnhem/Nederlande after my graduation from the MGI.

During that time I played in numerous bands and projects with a stylistic range from rock, funk to jazz. The band HÜHNERFRIEDHOF was founded during these days. Besides that I worked as a freelance musician playing live/studio sessions and taught guitar at different music schools.

In 2004 I was a founding member of the metal band COLDSEED. The band released their debut album "Completion makes the tragedy" in 2006. The album was received very well in the metal scene and sold more than 12.000 copies worldwide.

With the fusion trio GUT I lived out my love for high energy instrumental music. The band existed from 2008-2017 and released two highly acclaimed albums ("Nerd Alert"/2010 and "Le Chien du jazz"/2013).

In 2008 and 2012 I won the “Guitar Fight Club” – the first nationwide guitar contest of that kind in Germany.

Currently I works as a freelance guitar player and instructor. I'm preparing my  first solo album that will be released in 2019.
