I studied classical guitar as a teenager, and played some Renaissance lute at London university, where I earned a degree in music and musicology. My ambition was to be a studio guitar player and this musical education was a means to that end, an opportunity to understand the substance of music, and its ever-evolving style. What was your career path? That led me to a period in the studios where I learned to invent parts that would complement the tone and the texture of the song.

Why did you leave studio work? My father passed in March What happened after Wings? I was starting to spend a lot of time in the United States. The day after Wings officially folded in April , I met my future wife, Hope, in a Manhattan comedy club. I relocated to her home in Los Angeles, where we raised a family.

I went on to play recording sessions on hundreds of TV shows, movies and records. How did you become a fingerstyle guitar soloist? Always simmering in the background was a fascination with the self-sufficiency of solo fingerstyle guitar. So was Davey Graham a major influence?

I had a lesson from him once. Why play classical on a steel string guitar, rather than a more typical nylon string? I play guitars by C. Martin, which can trace their lineage to a European guitar-making tradition distinct from that of the Spanish classical guitar. Sonically, they have more in common with the early 19th century Viennese guitars. The guitar, and its historical relatives, the lute and the vihuela, have long been recognized as vehicles for the performance of popular and art music.

Fingerstyle has been the dominant technique on these fretted instruments since the midth century. Why this collection of pieces? The album coalesced as I recorded the tunes and found that they flowed in a satisfying way. Others are significant for being the first of their kind, or represent a window into a particular guitarist or style.

One came from a college-era trip to the British Museum, while the the rest were transcribed and arranged from facsimiles of original manuscripts or publications. Describe the repertoire?

This version is from the first ever folio for lute, arranged by Spinaccino and published in by Petrucci. Milan was a Spanish courtier who published the first folio of pieces for the Spanish vihuela, a guitar-like instrument tuned the same as a lute. Considered the greatest British lutenist of the era, John Dowland was highly paid, much traveled, and, being Irish, suspected of being a Catholic spy. The most revered composer of the Baroque era debatably, of all time is J. Giulianiwas a contemporary of Haydn and Beethoven.

This is the first movement and I avoided the repetition of the first section for the sake of brevity. Sor was an accomplished composer of songs, ballets and orchestral works.

Both men are considered founding fathers of classical guitar. His signature guitar was made by Stauffer in Vienna and is the model that C.

Martin emulated when he established himself in New York in Mertz wrote in a near-impressionistic, lightly chromatic style, similar to the pianist Schumann. The Spaniards, Arcas and his protege, Tarrega, laid the path that later allowed Segovia to establish their Spanish tradition as the dominant classical guitar paradigm. The Bolero is a stylized dance that has a quasi-improvisational Flamenco-like quality. The term references not only the milieu for its performance but also, in general, the European-influenced, semi-classical style popular in the late 19th century.

William Foden and Vadah Olcott-Bickford were prominent in the early 20th century American guitar scene, and were major figures in the BMG Movement that spearheaded the marketing of banjos, mandolins and guitars in America. Olcott-Bickford was a fervent advocate for the guitar and left a substantial historical archive.
