I learned on my own to play the guitar at the age of 7, one year after I listened for the first time to "Can't buy me love" many years after the Beatles had already split. My father, Johann Giel, who used to play 4 different instruments and passed away at the end of March 2010, was the one who introduced me to music and Simon & Garfunkel and showed me the first 4 accords. My uncle Friedel not only bought me my first guitar when I was 6 years old but also bought me all my records and enabled me to experience the full Beatle mania tidal wave. We used to play for hours Blues, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry (Friedel on the Piano, little EM on the guitar). The most important lesson he taught me is that I can overcome every hurdle in life as long as my 6 strings are around and as long I keep a great sense of humor. The Beatles had a tremendous impact on me even though my style has nothing in common with the Beatles sound. Nevertheless, listening to the Beatles and reading about George Harrison was the other reason why I learned to play. Up to this day I have never taken lessons and tried to come up with my own style. The most important thing is loving one’s own music and being able to send messages and express emotions even without lyrics. I will never forget my two years in Denmark with my friends Oddel (Thorsten), Duke (Juergen), Per and all my Danish friends, We played 24/7 our version of Punk, Rockabilly, New Wave in Viborg. After my return to Germany I became guitar player of the legendary "Subway Riders" and started an amazing journey of 6 years of touring, composing, playing together, huge gigs, large crowds, best fans in the world and spending millions of hours in our favorite home, the band room. Markus (Drums), Michael (lead guitar), Joerg (Singer), Guido (Keyboards), Marc (Bass) and I (EM) will keep all the good memories in our hearts forever. I still dream that one day will have a re-union gig (either in Oberhausen or the big apple, or both). After my move to New York City and leaving the Riders I retired from playing for several years but decided at the end of June 2008 to finally record all the songs which I had in my head for too long. Accordingly, I composed, recorded and mixed about 250 songs within 4 years. My songs are the result of the inspiration of the most wonderful people one can meet in a lifetime, and god's blessing, I am grateful.... and enlightened. During the past year I recorded all my music with a TASCAM, while using Cakewalk and Soundforge to add sounds. I am still playing a Yamaha Acoustic-Electric GuitarFGX730SCA for most of the time. At this moment I focus exclusively on studio recording. If there is any venue near New York City interested in having me, please send me a message to my email. In the interim all my music is dedicated to the people will always be important to me, family and friends from all over the world. Johann Giel IS and always will be alive!

Hi Em,
Thanks for stopping by my page and your support. My comments were more about my own doubts that I have in myself rather than anything you ever said. Sometimes I have trouble accepting compliments that's on me not on you. It's supporters like you that help me believe my efforts are not wasted.

Hope you check out my new version of lime translucent metal mashup I think you would dig it.
Thanks again it means a lot.
