Pietro Nobile: Smooth Presentation

Massimo Sposaro turned me on to this guitarist by the name of Pietro Nobile, and was nice enough to send me a bio on this smooth guitarist. A lot of you listening will really enjoy Pietro's live tone in this video, as well as his accuracy with both complex and simple passages. Fine playing.
