What I’m listening to…intricate guitars

Erik Mongrain percussive guitar “Fates” – reminds me of “Ice Flowers Melting” Finnish zither tape that I brought with me to China in the 1980’s. You can hear samples and see videos of his technique on his page: http://www.erikmongrain.com/News.asp

Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin, Paco de Lucia “Friday Night in San Francisco” – This is the original 1980 live recording.  Here is a clip from that show, and another.  The three got back together again for a reunion in 1996, which you can see here on YouTube.  We saw Paco in concert with his flamenco group in CA a number of years ago, quite amazing.
