Aaron Stang, like so many of us in the music industry, clearly remembers a very inspirational moment in the development of his passion for music. As a kid he was visiting Manny’s Music in New York when he met guitar hero George Benson. That special encounter was one of several that convinced Aaron he would be most fulfilled with a career in the music industry. Aaron went on to have a very successful career in music publishing working with Sandy Feldstein at Warner Brothers Publications, and on projects such as the Grammy award-winning Henry Mancini’s Pink Guitar (which features his playing on one song) and working with artists like Joni Mitchell. As an author, Aaron has produced several popular method books including the 21st Century Guitar Method and Sound Innovations for Guitar.
