Hello, my name is Emanuele "Manny" Fizzotti and I'm a guitar player from Italy based in London.
Since I moved over here I had the pleasure to be often invited to play with the "John O' Leary and Alan Glen All Stars", Glenn Tilbrook, the "Dennis Greaves Band" and "Nine Below Zero".
Recently I’ve been also featured on “Blues Matters!” magazine issue N.78 (June/July 2014).
I took my “Licence in Theory, Solfeggio and Musical Dictation” at the Conservatory of Music “Giuseppe Verdi” in Turin – Italy and I graduated “With Honors” at the “Guitar Institute of Technology” in Hollywood – California (USA).
I have been teaching (private lessons, music schools and workshops) for more than 25 years now, doing transcriptions and interviews for two Italian guitar magazines (“Axe” and “Chitarre”) and in 2005 I recorded an educational DVD called “Playing in the style of Jimmy Page”, in which I analyze the playing style of Led Zeppelin’s famous guitarist.
I’ve been also playing professionally since the 80s touring big stadia and appearing in major TV shows, performing at major European festivals with my own blues band or my Jimi Hendrix Tribute band “Psychedelic Sunrise” and doing session work in recording studios in Italy, in Los Angeles and here in London.
In my Lessons I can cover styles such as Electric and Acoustic Blues, Classic Rock, Pop, Finger Style at any ability level (from beginners to advanced) showing you how to play the songs you like and addressing topics such as bending, vibrato, hammer on /pull off, acoustic guitar strumming, how to read Guitar Tablature or the Notes on the Staff , Music Theory and so on.
I can also teach you how to use effects and pedals and to get the right sound from your guitar and amplifier to suit any particular kind of music.
