"When I turned 12 I picked up my dad's Yamaha and tried to play by myself. Indeed, playing guitar by myself is so much more fun and I continued to teach myself
“One day in Aug 2009 I found a video showing Sungha playing the guitar and I felt in love with this kind of guitar music: fingerstyle guitar! This guitarstyle indeed guided my life into another direction! My parents supported my talent and bought me my own instrument. Another Yamaha in shiny black color - like my fathers one – and with a cutaway too.”
