I dedicated this to Gary Moore (and the late Jeff Healey) last month at a concert in Spain. I always open and close recitals now with improvisatory pieces. I like it because it suites my style and also because not many classical guitarists improvise! This concert was at a Scandinavian arts centre in Albir, Spain. It got reviewed too!!

Here is the Gary Moore Tribute

Good stuff Matt.
Was that someone's cell phone ringing about 30 seconds into 'The Longing'? :roll:

Yep!! :lol:

And I had only just less than a minute before introduced myself and asked people to switch off their phones for the performance. I have come to expect all kinds of distractions (usually an annoying baby suddenly screaming) so it didn't put me off too much.

The only slight distraction (although a funny one) was in the corner of my eye I could see (and hear) several angry people in the audience giving daggers and whispering not nice sounding things to the phone culprit!

Matt
