Posts from ‘Guitar Demonstrations’
We’ve got videos of GSI’s Chris Garwood introducing us to some of this week’s New Arrivals, including new guitars from Mario Aracama, Sergio Perez and Marco Tejeda, plus an amazing 2005 Pepe Romero Jr. called ‘La Serrana’ from the Romero family’s private collection. Chris is a wonderful player, so this is a great chance to hear these guitars played right!
Here’s more of Peter Fletcher, this time playing the Gavotte from Bach’s Lute Suite #3 on a beautiful 1995 Hermann Hauser III (EX Jonathan Kellerman), Miguel Llobet’s Testament D’Amelia on a new Jose Ramirez Guitarra Del Tiempo, Isaac Albeniz’ Asturias on a 2013 Woonsun Lee, and Asturias and Segovia’s Oración on a 2006 Rafael Moreno Rodriguez ‘Negra’ (another example of great guitars being capable of handling classical or flamenco).
Here’s more of our friend Peter Fletcher playing some really interesting guitars for us, including a 2013 Paolo Coriani ‘Manuel Ramirez’ in spruce and CSA rosewood, a 2014 Antonio Raya Pardo ‘Torres’ in maple and spruce, a 2013 Woonsun Lee in spruce and Indian rosewood, a 2004 Kevin Aram ‘Dylann’ in cedar and Indian, and a great new Federico Sheppard ‘Camino’ in spruce and CSA rosewood.
Olivia Chiang was back at GSI – she’s 17 now and has been coming in to shoot videos since she was 12, making her a very young old friend of ours by now. This time she played Andrew York’s Home on a 2014 Fritz Ober, La Despedida by Juan A Rodriguez on a 2017 Kenneth Brogger and the Gigue from Bach’s Lute Suite in E Minor on a 2017 Dominik Wurth ‘Torres’.
Grisha Goryachev recently stopped by GSI and played just about every flamenco guitar we have for us! Here are the first few videos, including a 2011 Jesus Bellido, a 2008 Francisco Muñoz Alba that previously belonged to Grisha, a 2006 Conde Hermnaos AF 25/R in koa and spruce, a 1958 Manuel Reyes, a 1957 Arcangel Fernandez, and 2001 Conde Hermanos AF 25/R in spruce and CSA rosewood.
Here’s Alfonso Montes – the other half of Duo Montes Kircher – playing his composition Preludio de Adios on a gorgeous 1971 Ignacio Fleta in cedar and Indian rosewood. This Fleta is a perfect example of the maker’s great cedar period guitars, and Preludio de Adios shows it off beautifully.
