From North America's west coast to the east, across Western and Eastern Europe, thru the Tuvan steppes of Siberian Mongolia to the Fuji Mountains of Japan, D.mHotep has traveled across the northern hemisphere [and into Brazil] for the past two decades: observing, hearing, performing, and learning music of the human earth.
After leaving behind a career in architectural design, intense self-initiative and excellent private teachers such as Curtis Harmon Sr., Steve Giordano, Myrtle Young, Robert Kenyatta, Marshall Allen, and [Dennis Sandole students] Glenn Wallace and Pat Martino have helped to hone his jazz/music theory and guitar performance skills.
The HyVibe Guitar is the World's First Smart Acoustic Guitar. It uses a vibration control system, high-speed processor, and Bluetooth module to become its own amplifier, connected speaker, recorder, looper, and multi-effect processor.
