You can write it off as a parlor trick, but it’s still fun to watch, especially when the players are clearly having fun themselves. So here are three videos of guitar duos playing one guitar.
Marc Friedlander, one of our forum members, posted this today and it made my morning. He’s playing both parts of the Allegro from Christian Scheidler’s Sonata in D. I’m trying to decide whether or not I’d want myself as a duet partner.
A few weeks back I posted two videos of de Falla’s Spanish Dance played by duos – Williams and Bream on the one hand and Paco De Lucia and his brother Ramon on the other. I guess I was surprised to hear that Christopher Parkening and David Brandon’s performance reminded me more of the Paco version.
So Scott Wolf of Duo Solaris has done a transcription of Schumann’s Scenes From Childhood which will be published soon. Here the Duo is playing his transcription of #1 – ‘Of Strange Lands and Peoples.’ Scott is playing a Dominique Field guitar and Connie is playing a Christopher Dean.
Here they are playing Gnattali’s Suite Retratos, Movement 1 “Pixinguinha.” Connie is playing a Fritz Ober and Scott is playing an Edmund Blochinger guitar.
Here’s more of Duo Solaris, this time playing a Perez ‘Concierto‘ (Scott) and a Contreras 10th Anniversary (Connie).
Duo Solaris, which is guitarists Connie Sheu and Scott Wolf, stopped by the showroom and we got to record some great duets, which doesn’t happen too often. Here they’re playing two of our Studio Series guitars, both Mahogany, one Cedar top and one Spruce, and you can check out those guitars here: Studio Series.
