Guitarist Mike Rood is at the forefront of up-and-coming performers and composers in New York City. Born into a family of professional musicians, Rood has always been immersed in music. A self taught guitarist until late high school, in recent years Rood has studied with such musicians as Bruce Dunlap, Adam Rogers, John Patitucci, Vic Juris, John Abercrombie, Kenny Werner, & Claudia Villela.
Rood is passionate about bringing music to new places and nurturing the development of the guitar; he is one of only a handful of guitarists in the instrument’s history to utilize a unique technique based on the usage of five fingerpicks, rather than a standard pick or nails. This revolutionary approach has opened doors to contrapuntal improvising, and a pianistic, articulate style of playing.
