Great player on the scene here in Skopje, Macedonia. He’s got some Bucket Head flare, and an amazing technique for country/bluegrass as well. I’ve seen him around in a few places and he’s quite frankly…Awesome. Here are some testimonials:
Michael Angelo Batio: “Damjan is quite possibly the best new guitar talent I have ever seen and heard. He has absolutely amazing technique and plays with confidence and maturity. He is definitely one of the new, young emerging guitar stars. ”
Richard Hallebek: “I was very impressed by Damjan’s ‘in the pocket’ groove and awesome timing. He was swinging hard to the music and his timing was really laid back and grooving. His lines were really interesting and he was paying attention to the melody’s, vibrato’s and the overall message he was trying to get across. His playing was a mix of jazz, fusion and rock and all that melted into one. A player with a lot of potential. I would love to hear a full album of his music and playing! I would certainly buy it! ”
Brett Garsed: “Damjan Pejcinoski played incredibly well at Ziua Chitarelor and thoroughly deserved the first place prize. I’m sure he’s going to have an amazing career for many years to come.”
Andy Timmons: “Damjan really blew us away. He’s got a natural ability on the guitar and has already
developed a great technique. I look forward to hearing him develop his musicality in the years to come.
He has a great future. ”
Greg Howe : “The winner, Damjan, is likely on his way to having a very successful career as a guitarist. He was really amazing and his performance was technically flawless. I really enjoyed the fact that he already possesses a great sense of musical maturity, never allowing his very advanced technical skills to take place at the expense of musicality. Congratulations!”
To top it all off he’s a hell of a nice guy and not all full of himself like a lot of people walking around these days with far less talent.
Give it a listen, see if you agree.
