Mario Parga

Mario played in his first band at the age of 10, it was around this time period that he became interested and influenced by rock music and also discovered the music of Latin-jazz fusion guitarist Al Di Meola who had a profound effect on him. Now, Mario is considered by many to be one of the greatest sweep arpeggio players of the ‘shred’ guitar genre, combining complex arpeggio patterns with rapid alternate picking and string bending. He is also renowned for his highly emotive slower playing and natural vibrato. Equally at home on the acoustic guitar (both nylon and steel string), Mario has recorded several acoustic instrumental pieces over the years.
