As you bunch of unhygienic heathens are all quarantined (and rightly so), with way too much time on your hands, a somewhat longer post.

First a reduction for organ:

You heard him through the Master, right?

Seeing as we're all spending a few weeks in the box, here's one of my all-time favourite albums from Tangerine Dream...

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Classical playlists.

Many of these are over 8 hours of music:

Nothing to do with the guitar nor the technical abilities of the player, but he drags Bach, kicking and screaming, into the Romantic period. It hurts.

Contrast with this, just the way to play the ornaments, vary the rhythm, &c.

Bach wrote quite a bit of music for guitar. It's a very old instrument.



Very likely some of this was written for the lute, but it sounds good on guitar.

Not one piece. Note that I'd be delighted to be proven wrong. :)
"Wrote … for guitar" that's not "there exist transcriptions for guitar".

Undoubtedly, but the Renaissance & Baroque guitars are very different beasts form the modern "Spanish" one.

Even this is at least dubious nowadays. There seems to be a consensus that Bach's "lute" pieces were in fact for the Lautenwerck, a keyboard instrument, kind of clavicembalo with gut strings. Bach owned three of these.

Not always. My gripe was that one doesn't play baroque with romantic mannerisms.

I could provide documentation & examples, but don't want to bore the gentle audience.


Here's a baroque guitar:
