About Tosin Abasi
View Full Biography
Hi. My name is Tosin Abasi. I'm the lead guitarist for Animals as Leaders. I've been playing the guitar for 15 years, and touring professionally on and off for about 6.
A majority of that time has been spent playing extended range guitar (7 and 8 strings) . I'm primarily self taught but I studied jazz and classical guitar briefly at the Atlanta Institute of Music.
The extended range guitar can offer a lot of possibilities for composition. Unfortunately, the resources available to 6 string guitarist don't exist in the same prominence for the seven guitar (especially not the 8 string guitar). Through my compositions I hope to break down my approach to utilizing the 7 and 8 string guitar in both lead and rhythm work. We'll also examine multiple techniques such as Hybrid picking, Sweeping, Tapping and Slapping.

Mike H."I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar!"
I am 66 years young and I still got it! I would have never known this if it had not been for Jamplay! I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar! Ha! I cannot express enough how great you're website is! It is for beginners and advanced pickers! I am an advanced picker and thought I had lost it but thanks to you all, I found it again! Even though I only play by ear, I have been a member a whopping whole two weeks now and have already got Brent's country shuffle and country blues down and of course with embellishments. Thank you all for your wonderful program!
Greg J."With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace"
I'm a fifty eight year old newbie who owns a guitar which has been sitting untouched in a corner for about seven years now. Last weekend I got inspired to pick it up and finally learn how to play after watching an amazing Spanish guitarist on TV. So, here I am. I'm starting at the beginning with Steve Eulberg and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) Some day I'm going to play like Steve! I'm self employed with a hectic schedule. With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace, rewinding and replaying the videos until I get it. This is a very enjoyable diversion from my work yet I still feel like I'm accomplishing something worthwhile. Thanks a lot, Greg
