I began my musical journey when I was 13. At 14 years of age I began to compose and produce my own music. I have composed and produced 4 albums of my own music so far, and have produced for other artists in the genres of Rock, Hip Hop, Pop, and Heavy Metal, most notably the late British actor/singer Sir Christopher Lee (Lord of The Rings, The Hobbit, Dracula, Star Wars and 280+ movies).
As a Touring artist, I have played shows and had Guitar Clinics in 21 countries in Asia, Europe and America (the continent), sponsored by giant guitar maker CORT GUITARS. I also endorse 20+ companies from 3 continents for all the gear I use in the studio or to perform live, like guitars, amps, strings, pickups, guitar picks, cables, gig bags, guitar software, video recorders, audio recorders, pedals, etc., etc. I even have my own brand of shoes made by some cool artisans artists from Guatemala, my hometown. I also had the honor of featuring on 8+ million of sodas/cola cans from SUPER COLA, Guatemala's own answer to Pepsi and Coke.
I've been featured on the cover of great guitar magazines from Italy like AXE, Music Live from Indonesia and ZERO Guitar Mag from Argentina. I have also had countless articles in other mags.
I've won top prizes at important guitar competitions in London, UK, (Guitar Idol) and Bucharest, Romania (Guitar Ziua Chitarelor 3) when I was 17 and 18 respectively.
In 2016 my father and I founded my own guitar academy named GIG (Guitar Institute of Guatemala) which was a massive hit with more than 300 students enrolled in a period of 2 years, while I also continued teaching private lessons one to one in my spare time between shows and touring the world playing shows and guitar clinics in countries like Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Philippines, Vietnam, China, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, Poland, Croatia, The Netherlands, etc. sponsored by giant guitar maker Cort Guitars, who made my own signature guitar.
Regarding the teaching experience with me, you can expect a fun and customized lesson, we can go as low and as fast you wish. I have plenty of materials that can help you achieve your goals.
I can teach you anything from Shredding Rock to Jazz. Just check me out playing live on my YT Channel HedrasRamosLive.
As a tone freak, I can show you how to get a fat, warm, great and pleasant tone for your guitar/amp and teach you things related to the production of albums and composing if this is something you would like to pursue, just feel free to ask me.
GIG was a project that was born out of the need to give back to my country from all the great things I have received thru music and my traveling around the world performing the gift of music.
The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) is a membership association of more than 480,000 US composers, songwriters, lyricists and music publishers. The ASCAP is committed to nurturing music makers throughout their careers.
