Tariq Harb is a young Jordanian guitarist living in Canada who last year won first prize in the first two competitions he ever entered: The Barrios WorldWideWeb competition and the Montreal International Classical Guitar competition. And he’s been playing classical guitar for less than 7 years! Tariq was in Los Angeles for a few days this week, so we took the opportunity to record a few videos as well as an interview, all of which follow here. Continue reading to watch the interview, as well as Tariq playing Barrios’ ‘Confesión’ on an Otto Vowinkel guitar (he has one himself) and the Allemande from Bach’s Cello Suite No.1 on a 2002 Edmund Blochinger spruce-top. We’ll be posting more videos of Tariq this week, so stay tuned.
