My name is Francesco and I was born in 1972. I play guitar since I was 14, when I bought my first electric
guitar and attended musical lessons with great maestro Corrado Paonessa.
Near the end of secondary school, when I was seventeen, I found myself with a big question mark in mind:
to attempt a musician career or to continue my studies ? The answer came from the fact I choosed to frequent
During next years, until the age of 24, I played and studied guitar many many hours per day. For all this
time I've played with numerous friends and bands, approaching different musical genres from hard rock to heavy
metal, from hc-punk to thrash and so on.
My soloist career began at the end of '90s, I was taking advantage in using powerful personal computers
much more music-oriented than before, and produced all alone my first CD: the 6 tracks Order & Chaos EP was born on
In the meanwhile, were the 2001s, I completed my studies and took the degree, a Laurea in Informatica.
Then I got a full-time job... and (unluckily) the music changed...
After many years spent in doing other things but guitar, in 2006 I (luckily) re-started to play and compose
music in my free time. Also, in the middle of 2008 I became a MIDI guitarist: my dream of about
twenty years before finally came true.
Furthermore, this new century saw me more focused on progressive rock, jazz and fusion and while I
constantly look forward at new styles (like nu-metal for example) I'm also researching, every day much more,
for big masterpieces of past '70s, '80s and '90s.
Nowadays, when I'm through busy periods, soon as I can I play classical, acoustic or electric guitar for
my pure personal taste of doing that... to make my fingers happy when they touch the neck and hit the strings
to produce sounds...
After all, I didn't stop yet and so... frankygoes !!!
