Sometimes a performance comes along that is like nothing else you’ve ever seen, we guarantee this “Fly Me To The Moon” guitar arrangement is sure to impress!

Taking one of the crooner classics and turning it into a guitar masterpiece is quite a tough job, but Marcin makes it look easy. His fingerstyle/finger tapping display makes sure all the notes are there whilst simultaneously keeping a steady beat.

He studied classical guitar under the professional guidance of Jerzy Pikor, his teacher. Adding additional styles and techniques to his performances he learned flamenco techniques through a Spanish guitar teacher called Carlos Pinana.

After studying a few different styles and techniques he landed on his preferred style. Acoustic fingerpicking. Marcin didn’t stop there though. He started producing using his computer and combining his tech production with his acoustic guitar style. He recorded his own debut record called “HUSH”.

In 2018 Ibanez, a large world-famous guitar manufacturer from Japan asked Marcin to become one of their official endorsers for the brand. They provided him with guitars: AE900-NT and AVD80-NT models which he plays beautifully.

In 2016 he released an Album (LP) called “HUSH”. Distributed by a Polish record label “My Music” the album was released on October the 7th 2016. It featured different styles of music including 6 original tracks, 2 electronic remixes, and 2 instrumentals. Below is Marcin performing Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.

In the same year of his LP release, he won the International Classical Guitar Joaquin Rodrigo Competition and was a finalist in the International Fingerstyle Competition Guitar Masters.

Below is another brilliant guitar cover, this time of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You”. Marcin creates the melody and the beat brilliantly using just one guitar!
