Guitar guy. Berklee Professor. Funkmaster.
Tomo Fujita grew up in Kyoto, Japan, and at age 19 won a full scholarship to attend Berklee. Only problem was... he didn’t speak a word of English. He came to America and only through sheer hustle and determination, things worked out. He wound up becoming a member of the faculty at Berklee, and has taught some famous students, such as Eric Krasno, Adam Smirnoff, and John Mayer Tomo has also performed with some major artists, including Will Lee, Steve Gadd, Bernard Purdie, Steve Jordan, Susan Tedeschi, Phil Collins, John Mayer, James Gadson, Ronnie Earl, Coco Montoya, Eric Gales, Josh Smith, Kirk Fletcher, and Matt Schofield. Some great stories in here about the cultural differences and adjustments Tomo had to make, between Japan and America, jobs he held, ways he hustles - even today. VERY cool and interesting stuff. Great way to end the week and enjoy the weekend: Subscribe  Facebook: Instagram:  Twitter:
