A guitarist, composer and music producer, his style as a performer
has proved difficult to label, since it reflects a broad range of musical influences
(jazz, tango, South American folkore, rock).
This familiarity with playing different genres has enabled him to participate
as a recording artist in over seventy albums, including most notably his contributions for
León Gieco and Alejandro Lerner, Calle 13, Julieta Venegas, Soledad,
Jairo, Kepa Junquera, Axel, Miranda, Ariel Ramírez and Patricia Sosa,
Peteco Carabajal, Litto Nebbia, Liliana Herrero, La Bruja Salguero, etc.
He has combined his career as a performer with regular teaching activities,
giving workshops and guitar courses throughout Argentina.
In addition to the electric and Spanish guitars he plays, from a young age
he incorporated the ten-string guitar into his usual set of instruments,
inspired by his role model Egberto Gismonti.
Ernesto’s interests cover a wide range of sounds and he feels comfortable
with acoustic projects as well as more experimental tones.
He has been playing MIDI guitars for most of his career.
The Argentine guitar maker Esteban González
recently asked him to endorse his products
and designed a signature model especially for him,
the Camarada nylon MIDI guitar.
