German Cova was born 1970 in Ciudad Bolívar in Venezuela. He began his guitar studies at age 16 with maestro Miguel González with whom he learns a very solid base in relation to the execution of scales and music. He studies electric guitar, improvisation techniques and jazz in the "Roland Learning Center" school of the hand of several teachers where he learns the Pick technique in his right hand. He studied classical guitar at the "José Ángel Lamas" School (Caracas) with maestro José Luis Presa and later studied almost all his career at the "Juan José Landaeta" Conservatory. He travels to Spain where he specializes in flamenco guitar techniques to accompany dance and solo guitar, where he finds his greatest passion.

     He plays in concerts with the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra and the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra as soloist playing the work "Palimdromia Flamenca".
