Thiago Trinsi Finalist in The French Guitar Contest 2013

Pickboy and Mooer artist Thiago Trinsi is a finalist in The French Guitar Contest 2013.

For this final round Thiago had to compose and record a whole song, and he did it in 2 days. He composed the song in one day and I recorded in the very next day. Mike Lepond, bassist of Symphony X, played the bass on the new song called “Terra” which means Earth.

Says Thiago, “Pickboy picks are with me 100% in every moment of of these process! The Best Picks in the World!”

Thiago Trinsi Interview

Can you share a brief description of your musical background (gigs, tours and recording projects etc)?

My name is Thiago Trinsi, from Porto Alegre-RS south of Brazil, I am one of the guitarist in Seraphim, a heavy metal band with the CD Rising released world wide by King Records-Japan. I am composer, jam session player, arranger, orchestrator of music for films and I am also a music instructor in the north part of Iceland where I have been since 2005. My works also include guitar clinics, master classes, performing and recording. I am endorsed by Pickboy, Dean Markley, Spectraflex, and Wilson Effects.

What do you have going on now?

I had a very successful guitar clinic at Sam Ash in New York last week and I am here in Florida now doing Master Classes in Tampa, and in August I will be back in Iceland and continue the process with my album, my book – which is ready – and an instructional video to record.

Where do you see the direction of music going in the future?

Everybody loves music, and I believe they will keep consuming it forever; with the internet many those great undergrounds artists became popular in now days, What I see now is many great artists around but not a mainstream as it was before and for the future I just see the expansion of it.

What role did music education have on your career?

I have a very technical knowledge today but I got most researching by my own and everyone can do that and reach a very high level of musicality without been in a music institution. What I get with the music education is a better salary but just when I am working as a teacher for some music institution. But if you are a performer, composer or a privet teacher what counts the most is your talent.

Why do you like Pickboy Picks?

For many years picks were just picks for me, ’till I get a chance to try those Meta Carbonate picks by Pickboy so I could understand how necessary is for an artist to have the best, the best amp, guitar and of course the best guitar pick. With Pickboy Meta Carbonate picks I could sound so much better.
