People get into music for a variety of reasons, but Angel Marlowe's story is difficult to top. "When I was 13, my friends dared me to learn Eruption by Van Halen," Angel said. "I didn't know how to play a guitar, but I did it. It took me a year. At first I hated playing, but then I began to like it."
An Uncommon Path
Angel later began taking lessons from Vincent Bredice, who was teaching at Miami-Dade at the time, and was the author of The Complete Book of Guitar Improvisation. Angel then enrolled at the college and studied music. Along the way he was in a "bunch of little bands." As most musicians do, Angel worked in a music store, gave lessons, and eventually became manager, a post he held for 15 years. As his skills evolved, he began repairing guitars and can now fix anything with frets. "I learned repairs little by little," he said. Angel has been teaching guitar since the age of 16, and the longtime veteran guitarist is currently forming a cover band.
