Yeah I agree with you there about the RGT books. I like to be told exactly what to do in books for an exam. i found them lacking.

There is an electric guitar board called Trinity Rock school. They have 6 pieces in each book (all various styles) which you have to perform with a backing track and they leave gaps for improvised solos etc. Then there is all the usual scales, aural sight reading etc included in the book.

I like the way it is all easy to understand of what is required of you.

I just checked out the Rock School website. I think I'm going to order one of the book/cd sets and see what it's like. Thanks!

I was just having a tidy up and found a live cd of my old guitar quartet.

The pieces are by Eric Satie and arranged by S.Goss. The quartet only stayed together for just over a year but it was good experience.

This was recorded live at St John's Church about October 2005

Not enough action in here, gents!

I've finally gotten around to purchase what I'd like to call a decent guitar: A Juan De Perez Pamplona. Sounds pretty sweet even though I should put on some new strings already =) I have to thank Matt yet again for the last push of inspiration so I would purchase a spanish guitar. I might never have gotten myself to motivate such a buy.

But I'm not here to talk about the guitar itself since I know nothing about it =) But I've recorded a really short kinda interlude I'm presenting to my friend who wants to do some tunes with me in the more dark and melodic style - even though this might be too cute, hehe.

Are there any really fast kick-ass classical guitar pieces? (like on par with a Chopin Etude)

not exactly. I meant something that was originally written for guitar, not an adaption from a violin or piano, etc. But, that arrangement he was playing was pretty kick ass though.

To ease anyone in who isn't really familiar with Classical Guitar here is Etude no 2 by Villa Lobos.
Villa Lobos is compared to Chopin by many guitarits because like Chopin he wrote almost exclusively for his instrument.
This is the mighty English Guitarist Julian Bream.

These are Walton's Bagatelle's played by the Croatian guitarist Ana Vidovic

Matt

Thanks for the video links. You really should come over to the TK more often man.

But anyway we could really use you and your classical influence here. I play Classical guitar myself and love it. And I'm sure there must be more people than me here that do as well. Would be cool to have another person like yourself here at the TK! *r*

David such kind words, thank you :)

I will pop in from time to time, but I have my cyber work cut out keeping up to speed with my myspace and facebook sites let alone the growing guitar section at UR 8)

I am happy to talk Classical Guitar anytime though and being an unparanoid man give out my contact details freely.

If you have any questions or just want to chat please don't hesitate to e mail
