We head back to Greece this episode for a chat with an incredible session guitarist, Fotis Delinikolas, who, after being ridiculously busy touring with various bands and pop singers, has finally had the time during Covid, to record a solo instrumental album, which by the way, seriously rips! Fotis talks about his musical upbringing, his career with two of Greece’s most well known singers, touring and recording with a band signed to Sony Music, and now working with my good friend Ria, to promote his first solo release, Alma. We also take another trip down the guitar gear rabbit hole…..because, I tend to do that, Fotis gives his tips on how someone might go about becoming a session musician, and finally he talks about which guitar he might choose if he was offered an endorsement deal.
