Episode #2645

New Acoustic Guitar

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, February 26, 2007

Listen to balmy fingerstyle guitar shapes and patterns from South African guitarist Guy Buttery on this edition of New Sounds. Buttery also plays the mandolin and sitar, and together with special guest violinist Angus Kerr, and double bass, hear some of his acoustic experimental tone poems. Plus, treat yourself to the musical narrative of fellow fingerstyle player, the Italian Pino Forastiere, who falls in the Michael Hedges camp, with his tapping, muting, and alternate tunings. We'll also hear from New York's own Dominic Frasca, the inventive guitarist who builds his own instruments to have more than just 6 strings available to take on transcriptions and original works. And much more.
