Get To Know ANIMALS AS LEADERS’ Tosin Abasi

During one of many late night internet spirals, I came across this gem of a video featuring Animals As Leaders main man, Tosin Abasi, talking shop. I’m not a guitar player so I certainly didn’t expect to get much from a video meant to plug the Atlanta Institute of Music’s guitar course, but it turned out to be a fantastic interview clip with lots of insight and stories behind Abasi’s life, told by the man himself. He touches on subjects like how he got where he is today, the importance of understanding your instrument to it’s fullest potential, knowing your limits, technical playing in today’s music, endorsements, and even how he’s handling his own success. It’s definitely worth the watch for any fan of AAL and/or career oriented musicians.
