Nick Johnston - Public Display Of Infection - 2011 - Nick Johnston

Nick Johnston is a Canadian musician known primarily for his instrumental rock guitar style. He started playing guitar when he was 13 and learned and played songs by Metallica and Nirvana while jamming with a band in his basement. He later took a great interest in Shrapnel artists like Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, Jason Becker and more which inspired him to practice immensely hard. At 16, he played a school concert for over 700 people, which gave him the confidence needed to become a great guitarist. Nick then took lessons with guitar teacher Adrian Raso, who helped Nick immensely to become the great and unique guitarist he is today. Around this time Nick was aware of guitarists like Greg Howe and Brett Garsed and he practiced for up to eight hours daily to try and achieve the standard of these guys. ‘Public Display Of Infection’ received great critical acclaim and his second album ‘In A Locked Room On The Moon’ features features legendary guitar players Paul Gilbert and Guthrie Govan, and strengthened Nick's already strong credibility and reputation as a great virtuosic guitarist and songwriter. “Public Display Of Infection” is HR by this blog.
