This year at NAMM we had the pleasure of running into Leonardo Guzman, the fleet-fingered Colombian guitarist whose entry in our Guitar Solo Competition earned him gold from master judges Per Nilsson, Jeff Loomis, Ola Englund, and Ralph Santolla. Leonardo caught us up on his projects since the contest, including the release of his first EP, NOW! – mixed and mastered by the talented Alex Argento. See the video below for the full cut of Leonardo tearing up the Scar Symmetry track ‘Domination Agenda’ provided by our friend Per Nilsson for the contest.
