Hey Everyone! my name is Eddie van der Meer and I’m a fingerstyle guitarist from The Netherlands. I started playing the guitar when I was 10 years old and at the age of 13, after going to a concert of Gareth Pearson, I discovered a guitar style called Fingerstyle Guitar. Shortly after discovering Fingerstyle guitar I started practicing a lot of Tommy Emmanuel’s songs and a year later I uploaded my first Youtube video. (click here to watch it)
At the age of 15 I decided I had create my own voice on the guitar and I started to focus on arranging and composing. At first it was really hard for me but my time I got better and better at it, and in April 2012 I uploaded my first arrangement (video).
After receiving a lot of positive feedback I started making more youtube videos but it wasn’t until the January 2013 that I took Youtube really serious and started to work really hard on making videos & building an audience. At the end of 2014 I had 25.000 subscribers which was a huge milestone to me. My dream is to be able to live off of Youtube one day, and spread my music around the world.
