Isle-of-Skye

It’s been another amazing year for guitar music over here at GSI and as the year wraps up we’d like to take a moment to thank all of the amazing musicians who have lent us their time and talent to create the great videos we publish every week.

He plays the Barrios on a new Teodoro Perez ‘Maestro’ spruce and lacewood guitar, the Chaconne on guitars by Alejandro, Tobias Berg, Roberto Gomes and Manuel Velazquez, and the Rossiniana on guitars by Felipe Conde Crespo and Dominik Wurth.
