Radim Hladík

Radim Hladík was a Czech guitarist, composer, and producer known primarily for his trademark rock and jazz-fusion electric sound, although his early style was more blues-oriented, and Hladík also played acoustic folk. Since the second half of the 1960s, he has been considered one of the best and most influential Czech guitarists, and has won awards in the "beat rock" category. Learning the piano as a child, Hladík later studied classical guitar at the Prague Conservatory for two years.
