In Topic: Guitar names

10 February 2006 - 10:53 PM

My Alvarez MC-90 classical is named Eleanor, my Guild GAD-50 is named Evelyn (after my Mom), my Samick CT5-CE nylon is named Bianca and my Epi Chet Atkins nylon string is named The Cheat.
Dumb names for a dumb player.

In Topic: folk songs

If you wanna go genuine folk buy some collections by the Kingston Trio, early Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. Peter, Paul and Mary is very traditional folk with a lot of recognizable tunes. I'd highly recommend some John Hurt who was great folk/blues and Woody Guthrie will buy you all sorts of credibility. The Kingston Trio sound most like what you want. They had three part harmonies, guitar, tenor guitar and banjo. I highly recommend them.

I bought the Alvarez MC-90 classical not too long ago. Solid Cedar top and Solid Rosewood Back and Sides for about 600. It was a sweet buy and surprisingly versatile. I've already worn the finish a bunch near the soundhole from Flamenco taps, but I can feel the wood loosening up the more I play it. Alvarez is great, especially for the price.

In Topic: Anyone know any cool classical songs?

Yeah im listing more and more to classical now, and I like songs like classical gas by eric clapton. The moonlight sanatas really cool too. Anyone know any more?


Actually, Clapton never recorded Classical Gas, it's the Mason Williams version often accredited to Clapton on the internet, but Clapton's never recorded it and he probably couldn't play it.

Anyway, if you want some good classical there's some great stuff by Segovia (of course) Christopher Parkening, John Williams, Earl Klugh and the Los Angelas Guitar Quartet. All great stuff.
