Michele Lideo

Michele Lideo was born in Padua 1983. During the first three years of the High School he attended the classic guitar course with the teacher Z. Hodossy, who allowed him to learn the principles of this instrument. He will continue later to deepen the knowledge of the guitar beyond the classic repertoire, discovering new textures like the blues played with the acoustic and semi-acoustic guitar.

While he was studing philosophy at the university, he got in contact with the world of the acoustic fingerstyle guitar thanks to the meeting with the guitarist Luca Francioso from Padua. Michele had the chance to deepen the style and the technique of the fingerstyle for four years with him.
