Melbourne based Brendan Hains is renowned as one of this country’s finest guitarists. He began playing the guitar in 1975 regularly practising for up to 10 hours a day.

In 1989-91 he attended Guitar Craft courses with legendary King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp in New Zealand, USA and Switzerland.

Well known for his superb technical skills, prodigious speed and precision Brendan has performed locally and internationally with many world class musicians. His critically acclaimed and high selling solo album “Modal Nomad” was released in December 2006 coinciding with a virtuoso performance from Brendan and some of Australia’s most accomplished musicians at the Melbourne Town Hall, receiving a standing ovation. Tracks from the album are being used by the Australian Olympic team in synchronized-swimming.

Brendan’s current band with Julien Wilson, Jeremy Alsop and Craig Beard perform jazz in Melbourne at corporate events. He has appeared on television and radio as well as being featured in Australian Guitar magazine and Guitarist Australia. His compositions have been included on their accompanying cds and have been universally well received.

Brendan has a wealth of teaching experience at private, secondary and tertiary levels, teaching up to over one hundred students a week, numerous professional musicians, guitar teachers and chart topping artists.

He is founder and head guitar instructor at Caroline Springs School of Music. His student results are unsurpassed. Highly adept at teaching a broad array of musical styles, he has a great ability for imparting knowledge to beginner and advanced students. He is also a guitar examiner for ANZCA and a great believer in following a structured program in any musical education.

In addition to his musical achievements Brendan is a multiple national record-holder in powerlifting! http://www.brendanhains.com/

This is very nice.
 
I think he belongs here.
The first album you linked only has a few jazz/fusion tracks, but the second may get him into JR/F.
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.
