Marco Plays Classical Guitar
Another Homemade Record ! !
With how conservative Rock & Roll has gone:
I figured the most radical thing I could be doing these days is immersing
myself in Bach, Carulli and Mozart with my guitar.
4) Minuet I
9) Grand Etude
The Prelude and the Mozart piece are by Fernando Carulli. My all-time fave guitar player. Ever!
Boceto Andaluz is by Bartolome Calatayud. He wrote and performed in Spain in the 50s and 60s.
The Minuets by Johann Sebastian Bach; who likely wrote it on lute or cello, because it lends itself
to guitar very easily right away. Now, Segovia insisted all the time that Bach was also a guitar
player and must have composed most of his piano and harpsichord music on the guitar first. I
think I buy that. They sure are easier to transcribe than a lot of other literature.
The Grand Etude is Carulli and so is Theme and Variation.
PICTURED: This is me kickin' back and lookin' on as my cousin from NYC plays a "bunch
of heavy metal stuff" on my 1950's hand made Mexican classical guitar.
"Note the footstool I crafted with piano keys ripped out of a broken Steinway."
