Following up on my last post Draw Your Strings, here are a couple more pieces which I find interesting.
The first piece on the first CD of Western Classical music that I bought was Mozart’s ‘Rondo Alla Turka’ (or Turca). A search for something else (after hearing this I forgot about that original quest) led me to a beautiful example of the 8-finger technique in this short rendering by metal guitarist Chris Broderick. Listen and marvel 🙂
Thanks to my friend Salil Bhasin, I found this piece by a Harvard student (at least at the time of this recording). Amidst the palaver and showboating, you will hear some wonderful guitar play.
