Silas Fernandes is one of today’s leading innovators of shred generation, who developed his outstanding music skills through heavy music to become a true virtuoso of this music genre. During his 30 year career, Silas had the opportunity to develop his skills through various opportunities which included positions as a guitar instructor IG&T (Guitar institute of Technology Brazil), producer, business consultant, and finally as a guitarist who has worked with many names in the Brazilian Music business.
He began in music as a teenager, playing in heavy metal band of the legendary “metal” scene in the ABC region in São Paulo in a band named Esfinge along with Andreas Kisser who would later become the guitarist for Sepultura.
Immersed in records with names like Metallica, Steve Vai, and Judas Priest, Silas mastered killer shredding techniques beyond the necessary aggressiveness that characterizes the heavy sound.
From there he began his career releasing instructional videos and teaching, in addition to playing in a hard rock band named Smoking Guns. As the great producer that he is, Silas always kept up to date with regards to the styles of bands and tricks involving music production by working as a “guitar tech” for renowned artists in Brazil as well he wrote The Book “Set up” that later became a course in EM&T (School of music and technology). He is also the official clinician for Nux pedals. Sao Paulo’s finest shredder, known both for his solo heavy metal act and his Rig on Fire YouTube series. Guitar players will not want to miss seeing this virtuoso at work.
