MIRO DI GHAESA’S BIOGRAPHY
My first guitar was bought by my parents when I was 12. Then I learned my first chords, had a couple of performances with a school orchestra, but after a few months the guitar ended up in the corner of my room collecting dust for years. regularly listened to radio Luxembourg and discovered bands The Kings, Rollinstones, Animals and Beatles and of course got infected with the team, still football was more tempting to me than guitar.
The POKUS Group - Guitar in Bačka Palanka in 1973 with Predrag Zorić (drums) and Ljubo Stanić (bass).
In the second year of high school (1968), of my choice, and of course again, I received from my parents a home-made copy of the Gibson ES 135 guitar, but of course the acoustic version. However, I spent most of my free time trying to perfect my painting techniques, as I had a tendency to do fine arts in elementary school. At that time I had discovered jazz and rock music by listening to, apart from radio Luxembourg and radio Belgrade, a different program rotating every morning. jazz and bossa-nova standards and, of course, the broadcast Evening with Radio on the first radio program of Belgrade, edited and directed by Nikola Karaklajic, from where I recorded on the tape recorder what I liked .... these were ... Jimi Hendrix, Rory Gallagher, Cream, Santana, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Jethro Tull, Humble Pie, Janis Joplin..and listening to those tapes for hours and days I wasted pens, temps, pastels, showers ... looking for myself I have started practicing and learning the guitar seriously since the 18th century.
There were two key events that fall of 1971. The first was a one-week boys' excursion that made classmates urge me to bring a guitar and teach them to follow what they liked to sing, which apart from the old city songs and songs from popular local artists. I met two from a nearby department who declared me a solo guitar player, and I enjoyed trying to improvise and repeat the themes because the two already played an accompaniment. We already knew simpler rock standards like Hey Joe , House of the Rising Sun, Satisfaction, Suzie Q, Come Together and others, so on our return we made a band..I put a magnet on an acoustic guitar and turned on my friend Pere's radio with which we practiced. The second, very important event for me was a set of gramophone records received by my friend from the bench and from the area of Ivica, and those who had just arrived from New York. visit to USA ..... went into the record store, explained who he was buying for and the seller made a choice that played a big role in my education and in my approach to guitar. These were the following issues: Ten Years After - Cricklewood Green, Woodstock - 3 × Vinyl - LP - Album, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - 4 Way Street - 2 × Vinyl, Hendrix - Band Of Gypsys, TASTE (Rory Gallagher) On The Boards and The Guess Who - American Woman. In addition, I often listened to LP releases Deep Purple - April, Deep Purple In Rock, The Moody Blues - Days Of Future Passed, The Doors - L.A. for months. Woman, Santana - Abraxas, James Taylor - James Taylor, Big Brother & The Holding Company - Janis Joplin and with the increasing frequency of trying to reproduce as faithfully as possible the music that filled me, the whole school year has passed
The first electric guitar.
In 1972, I saved up on my pocket money and bought a second-hand electric guitar from the Czech production of Jolan and used the trip to the dressing room in Trieste to buy a guitar booster. I used a hand-made lamp amplifier left by a guitarist who practiced with the band in the room. local communities where I am. After two or three months, I bought a copy of Gibson SG from the Italian company EKO.
In addition to practicing listening to songs, I also got some booklets on guitar playing from which I learned a little, but I came across a book called Fundamentals of Music Theory by Marko Tajčević, which at the time was like a bible for musicians in this space. Since I didn't go to music school, there were two steps forward and one back, but this seriously widened my basic perspectives.
I was living with my parents on the third floor and one day I heard a piano rendition of Summer Time, I am a Man, Smoke on the Wather, Child in Time .... While I was wondering what was going on, because the girl was normally playing by then program for high school music, the doorbell rang and when I opened that girl invited me to meet her friend who plays rock music on the piano .... So I met the Government of Turas ... a seventeen-year-old mother who had been for generations well known pop family. He went to music school, studied violin and was very talented and his father bought him very good organ during this time and of course the amplifier so it didn't take more than a few minutes to go to him and play ...
We also did a band and played dances in Vojvodina places like most other rock music at that time ...
