From the cotton fields in Mississippi, a cry. A cry that touched the heart and inspired the soul of Shun Ng. A wave of sorrow and blessing came over him; from heart to fingers to strings, the ability to weep.
Born in Illinois, raised in Singapore. Shun was struck by the Blues at the age of 16. He played the guitar as much as he could in local Singapore pubs, jamming with the industries’ veterans every week. Just a year later, Shun stepped back into Chicago, home of electric blues and traded licks with the headliners of the blues scene in the legendary Chicago blues clubs.
Over the years, his music developed from The Blues to Soul, Funk, Jazz, Rock & Roll and Pop. He soon created a daring new rhythmic style of playing the acoustic guitar incorporating percussion, horn lines, funk bass and ghost notes, venturing into the world of solo fingerstyle guitar. He soon discovered how to control the bass with his thumb, accent the harmony with his other four fingers and play drums with his palm, all simultaneously. In 2012, Shun Ng released his debut album, entitled “Funky Thumb Stuff” with passionate vocals and groovy solo acoustic arrangements, the album was well received by many acoustic guitar lovers and musicians around the world.
Shun is also very active in social work and is the Director of Music, for The Amber Initiative. He has organized concerts such as Legacy ’11 and has produced, written and performed music to raise funds for various charitable foundations around the world.
“Analysis Cables are simply amazing. Being an intricate acoustic player, I’ve always had issues with the acoustic guitar plugged in, Although necessary for live settings, I could never get the subtleties I wanted from the instrument and could never figure out the why, I was then recommend by Pulse Of Music, to try these cables. I’d always been a skeptic but when I did A/B comparisons against the industry standard cables, the results were amazing. I don’t know what they do to their cables but I suddenly find that I get a much rounder bass and just a fuller overall sound. I suddenly get the dynamics that I’d been searching for! Not only does it sound better, it makes me play better! I find that I can be more subtle in my playing. Thank you Pulse of Music for this recommendation and Analysis Plus for such an beautiful, amazing product.”
