Biography

Adam Hi! My name is Adam Fulara. I'm 40 years old. I live in Ostrzeszow, Poland. It's a small town in the middle of my country. Please e-mail me regarding any mistakes I may have made on this page. My English is far from perfect.

I'm a Computer Science/Electrical Engineering graduate from Wroclaw University (it's a famous university in Poland). My specialty is software engineering.

My main hobby is music - I have been making music for 30 years now.I first started as an accordion and piano player while in a six-year course at a music school in Ostrzeszow. When I was in fifth grade, I took up the guitar. At first I played rock music - I liked Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, Marty Friedman, etc. I had my own band and we gigged frequently, on occasion opening for famous Polish bands like Houk or Armia.

When I was 18, I started to play the guitar with the two-hand tapping technique. At about this time I went to a concert and saw a famous Polish guitar player called Partyzant. He also plays using the two-hand tapping technique. I was blown away by his music.

In school, I learned many polyphonic pieces by J.S. Bach. I liked this type of music, but I couldn't play the entire work when I was just starting to play the guitar (using standard techniques). I could only play one track (either the left or the right hand side of a piano transcription). However, when I employed the two-hand tapping technique, I could play the entire piece.

I have been using the two-hand tapping technique for 23 years now. I play a special doublenecked tap-guitar, made by REK Guitars according to my own specifications.

Currently I play with my trio: Full-X (tap-guitar, bass and drums). The main goal of my musical development is counterpoint improvisation based on Cantus Firmus method as well as on bebop. We play our own compositions and standard jazz. I play Classical music too - I like listening to Bach, Chopin and Beethoven, but in the future I want to play only Bach tunes, and counterpoint improvisations with my band - this is what I like.

I'm working also as an editor of "Gitarzysta" ("Guitar Player" - Polish ed.) where I'm writing reviews and tapping workshops.

  • "An Introduction to Counterpoint" (ABsonic 2013) - as leader of Full-X
