Esteban - The Best of Esteban Review

by Sherrill Fughum

.
This largely self-taught virtuoso has taught numerous people to play guitar and has entertained millions with his music. Bit it almost never happened. Born Stephen Paul in Pittsburgh, this steel mill workers's son got his first guitar when he was eight years old. Working very hard Stephen learned to play well enough to study guitar in college. In 1968 Carnegie Mellon University started a guitar program using a cellist as the instructor. Young Stephen again found himself on his own. Four years later he graduated with a degree in Guitar and English Literature. His dream was to study with the renowned guitarist Andreas Sergovia. After much hounding and persistence Stephen got his chance and the name he is know to the world today - Esteban. For four years Esteban studied with Sergovia before performing on his own.

One year later tragedy struck in the form of a drunk driver leaving Esteban with a severely damaged arm and hand. It took 10 years but Esteban found his way back to performing. Since 1990 Esteban has been topping the charts with his flamenco style playing. He is often seen on shopping channels with his guitar line and teaching methods bringing the joy of music to the masses.

With his latest album The Best of Esteban he brings music to the masses in another form. Esteban demonstrates his playing style in the original tunes but also offers something for everyone with his version of "Fernando" by ABBA, "Runaway", and the George Harrison hit "Here Comes the Sun".

With his use of other instruments - particularly the violin - Esteban brings a new age feel to his music similar to some of that played by piano virtuoso John Tesh. "Sergovia taught me how to put emotion into my music. Now I play from the heart," says Esteban, and "The Best of Esteban" shows that heart.
