Scott Tennant – 1969 Hermann Hauser II


Here’s our next video from our June 1st event featuring Scott Tennant playing guitars from the Pepe Romero collection that inspired Pepe Romero Jr. as a luthier – Scott playing Pepe Romero’s 1969 Hermann Hauser II, the guitar that Pepe Romero used to record most of the Opera Suites CD. Pepe Jr. has a great story about the guitar, and then Scott plays Segovia’s ‘Estudio Sin Luz’ for us.

Special thanks to Pepe Romero Sr. for letting us hear these fantastic guitars, to Bodegas M for providing amazing Tempranillo and AlbariƱo wines for the event, to Carlos Flood of recorditlive.com, who recorded audio for us on an A.I.R. console, and to Jurgen Reich for his beautiful photography.

Pepe Romero Jnr says that, for him and his father, the requirement of a great guitar is the ability to play classical or flamenco. I understand that point of view – it’s about responsiveness – but many guitars don’t fulfil that requirement and sound magnificent. Pepe Romero Snr has owned a few of them. This guitar has some impressive characteristics but tends to emphasize string noise.
