Nikolaos I. Papadopoulos was born in 1985 in Thessaloniki, Greece.
From an early age he started playing the classical guitar. Being a good student allowed him to study Law at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki from which he gratuated in 2008 while at the same time continuing and concluding his music studies, which, besides the classical guitar, also included Harmony, Byzantine Music and Fugue. It was in 2005 that he got his guitar Diploma.
For a period of about 3 years he worked as a lawyer and later on quit in order to support his father's business.
Nick was always fond of technology. Since his first PC in 1997, he never stopped learning and experimenting. In 2004, he made his first attempt to create a personal home studio and for some years managed to create his own music with the help of a sound engineer, from whom he learned a lot.
Nick has made a great discovery as far as the classical guitar is concerned, called Tirando Completo©. It is a brand new technique of guitar playing that offers the highest power and best sound quality possible, and all that without using nails!
His latest discovery is NPDT Process©, the reward of endless hours of thinking, experimenting and critical listening. The initial motive was trying to configure his sound system in order to satisfy his "absolute" ears.
