Sony Music artist Kotaro Oshio from Osaka, Japan is the most successful and influential fingerstyle guitarist in Asia. Known for pioneering the ‘nail attack’ technique, a compelling, percussive half strum, half pluck approach that upon first listen suggests multiple musicians performing. Widely celebrated in his native country, Kotaro has also made multiple appearances at the Montreux Jazz Fest in Switzerland where he was once invited to jam with the legendary B.B. King. Kotaro’s performance comes to us compliments of Takamine Guitars.
