Acoustic Guitarist and Original Singer Songwriter Ylia Callan
YLIA CALLAN Guitarist - Surfer - Nerd
Folk pop and rock singer songwriter from UKI, NSW Australia. I embrace the mistakes. If reality TV is hot, then why not go for reality music? I believe there is no such thing as a mistake, rather the in between notes of the scale, also known as modes. The so called mistakes take music somewhere new and after many years of practice you will learn to make up for them by improvising to make it work.
I started playing guitar at a very young age, I can't remember how old, somewhere in between 5 and 8. My Mother was a singer and father a classical, acoustic and electric guitar player, so it's in my DNA, while my right hand is natural and seems to play automatically to some extent. My left hand on the other hand, took years of practice, patients and dedication. If you practice for 10 minutes a day you will improve by the end of the year. An hour a day, in a matter of months. 8 hours a day and you might end up like Jimi Hendrix.
My Music history: I started playing the acoustic guitar I purchased at the local markets for 50 bones in the beginning and I had a few guitar lessons, where I learnt basic chords, the minor and major scale, string names, music notes and tone tone semitone tone tone tone semitone. Guitar basics that are vital to continue a learning music the right way. I played bass from about 14 - 20 years old in a few different bands. I had one singing lesson when I was about 25 and I learnt how to breath and push from the stomach, I had no idea before that and still have to remind myself.
Playing mostly fingerstyle and fingerpicking acoustic guitarist instrumentals with some slide blues and soft rock, mainly on a Fender 12 string acoustic guitar in a variety of tunings including Standard DADGAD Easy Open C and Low C. I also play Maton and Takamine 6 string guitars. Recording music in a modern studio comprising of hardware such as an iPhone 6 Samsung s5 mini and Macbook and using AudioCopy Garageband and iMovie software.
