Author Bio - AJ Mani

AJ has been intimately involved with music for more than 25 years as a composer, electronic musician, guitarist, writer, music software developer, and keyboard technician.

Born in India, his first musical experience was with the violin and clarinet. His musical world changed when he got a guitar at 13 and joined his first band in his first year of his college.

Somewhere along the way, he began writing professionally on music and other topics.

Nowadays, he doesn’t get as much time to practice and play as he used to, but he still manages (just about!) to fulfill all his session requests.

He is a devout music gear hunter and has been collecting musical instruments all his life. As his wife keeps on saying, “You’re very good at buying nice instruments but terrible at selling them!”.
