„(...) In the new stuff, Adam's really grown musically. The first [recordings] were full of fire and very athletic - and it's Bach, so it's beautiful - it's very much in your face. The new stuff had great dynamics and great vibrato even with a very unusual technique. Everything had a great sense of timing, and I realized, this is really a guy to look out for.(...)”
|Paul GIlbert 2013 interview on Ibanez site|
„(...)My new Polish friend Adam Fulara who exemplifies hard work and dedication (find him on YouTube). link”
|Andy Timmons (Facebook 2013, after gig at the Great Guitar Escape)|
„Full-X is like a train, which nothing can stand in the way. Sometimes it will be an obstacle, and it seems that it can not be beat, but the Full-X hits and cuts it in half going on”
|Wojtek Pilichowski (Bass Days 2013)|
„This is what happens if you practice your guitar for 100 hours a day for your entire life, then eat a really, really hot pepper.”
|Paul Gilbert (www.paulgilbert.com, 2008)|
„Adam Fulara is the most original Polish guitar player. (...)His counterpoint improvisation, total control over the sound (difficult tap-portato articulation), and a constant search for his own, unique way make it except for the Polish music scene (...)”
|Maciek Warda (TopGuitar 2014/01)|
„When Adam Fulara was invited to Paul Gilbert's Great Guitar Escape The people were totally confused. Several well-known guitarists told, that actually they are more deserving of such a distinction, others commented "lucky guy, lucky him." But to understand why Adam was selected (...) need to look at the music world from a different perspective and realize that the most precious which can be a musician, it's originality . (...) The world does not need another Hetfield, Joe Satriani or Metheny. You can not walk in life someone else's shoes (...). Can you get in life things (...) but you can not make people remember us and this will not happen until we begin to write its own history.”
|Chris Inglik (Guitar Player, Sep 2013)|
„Great composition, really beautiful (about Adam's composition after gig of Adam at the Tommy Emmanuel Festival in Rietberg 2008)”
„Adam Fulara is realy genius.”
„For me he is a musician who proved that there has not yet been said the last world in guitar-playing technique. Fulara is not only the best tapper in Poland he is also the first one who applied two hand tapping technique from Bach to jazz. His achievements are simply impressive and lay a new goal to be accomplish by the others guitarists.”
("Guitar World" - Polish ed. main redactor)
„I like the idea of contrapuntal improvisation, presented by Adam. It sounded interesting and seems to me that is the right direction of musical search.”
„The way of Adam's playing is unique and impresive. It requires a lot of work, knowledge, patience. I will keep focus on the counterpoint recordings of Adam.”
„Adam Fulara and his Full-X trio music – very interesting and creative use of rare guitar playing technique called tapping (that I myself apply sporadically). And his fluency!”
„Adam Fulara has shown in his recordings musical versatiity accompanied with solid basics(…); he is playing in a freemanner in various polyphonic composition (…); his approach to music makes us aware of how much it is to be discovered (in the area of music).”
|Janusz “Macek” Mackiewicz|
“Guitar and Bass” nr 2/2004
„Adam Fulara (...) is a promising talent in two hand tapping. His specialty is polyphonic compositions (...)”
|K. "Partyzant" Toczko|
("Guitar & Bass" Pl. ed., nr 1/2005)
„Congratulations to Adam Fulara for developing
a unique approach to two-handed tapping technique. I believe it will be
very successful way of playing in the future.”
„Adam Fulara is a passionate player
with very natural technique.”
„Given remarkable mastery of the instrument we have sponsored Adam Fulara as a teacher for masterclasses in the July 2005 session. He has demonstrated a remarkable ability to perform both classical - specially Bach - as jazz pieces. Adam has given his lessons in English. There were insteresting and well understood by the audience.”
European Tap Seminar Director
„Adam Fulara has discovered new level of jazz
guitar. His music is as innovative as it is interesting.”
"Guitar City 2005"
„As part of the cyclic Friday concerts in Polish Radio Rzeszow March 28, 2014 starred Adam Fulara & Full-X trio, meeting with a warm audience response confirmed encores, the overall satisfaction as well as the amount of records sold. The heart grows when the music goes to the author's grateful recipient who can appreciate its uniqueness.”
|Victor Czura, Polish Radio|
„I was at a concert Full-X in Rzeszow and absolutely it was not time wasted. My special attention was drummer Michael Bednarz, who admittedly plays heavily, but exactly how much you need. Anyway, the whole rhythm section Full-X played great and many a soloist with such section would like to play.”
