The Restoration of Guitar

Since one of my passions is classical guitar I thought I'd share with you something of this much under-appreciated instrument. Guitar has been boycotted lately with the cum-bye-ya ma lord lot so here is something of how stunning it can really be. This is Julian Bream (legend) and John Williams (Robot) with Debussy's Clair de Lune.

This is Sor Study in B Major again with the legend that is Julian Bream.

For those of you who know the film 'The Deer Hunter' here is the famous Cavatina which never ceases to move me.

Many people know that J.S. Bach wrote lute suites; what they don't know is that many guitarists have transposed these for classical guitar.

This is the famous theme from Schindlers List.

And the first song that the mad trad himself learned to play - Romance de amore (which isn't as romantic as it sounds as it was made for an early blue movie)
