Welcome to our new series on the very best unknown guitarists currently out there plying their trade. These are the guitarists who push the limits of their skills, and instruments, in pursuit of six string excellence. You may not have heard of them but that is not through a lack of skill or dedication but because the world has not yet recognised their talents. Someday this may change and you can say you saw them here first!!!
Our first six string sensation is Steve Onotera who is better known as the Samurai Guitarist.
Born in the Manitoba prefecture of Canada, The Samurai Guitarist, Steve-san Onotera, honed his discipline under the watchful eye of the country’s most powerful musical sensei.
Bred on rock, raised on the blues, trained in jazz, The Samurai Guitarist creates incredibly innovative videos that showcase his talents on the guitar.
With nearly 44,000 You Tube subscribers and over 3.5 million video views The Samurai Guitarist has built a strong following with his guitar tuition videos and quirky re-interpretations of well known 90s hits. However, we love his five guitar rendition of Beethoven’s Für Elise which is well worth a look.
