From Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to Jab Tak Hai Jaan, guitar has been the favourite musical instrument of youngsters. While many have fallen in love with it, few have taken it as their passion and learned to play it. Let’s us hear the story of one such young boy, Thambu, the guitarist of the band LOSS.
How did you discover your talent?
It all started in childhood when my Dad used to take guitar classes. He didn’t give me a guitar since he used to think I would never grow any interest in music. After the classes, I used to borrow a guitar from one of the students and practice it for some time. As my interest in playing guitar grew, I started playing it in front of my friends and that used to give them a good laugh but never did it make me feel any embarrassed.
How has been your journey since then?
When I entered the college, I got what I needed the most: the support. With the support of my friends, I stepped on the podium, with the same support I formed a band and our band performed in different cultural fests of NITs and IITs. It gave the limelight which was necessary for our band. We soon became notable in cities like Chennai, Coimbatore, Dindugal, Bengaluru, and Madurai.
As the days passed, our band became more popular and we performed for TV, radio and live shows. I remember performing as a birthday tribute to A R Rehman Sir in Suryam FM channel. We performed in Radiocity and Radio Mirchi FM channels.
Where do you plan to go with your talent?
We are currently working on our cover and our composition is going to be on YouTube. Of course, we want to grow bigger and we are planning to do more live performances as well.
So, what is your message to others who might be inspired by you?
I always tell people to learn new things and acquire new skills. Your skills combined with your talent will do wonders.
