Default Classical repertoire alternative...

There's a new Fretboard Journal podcast featuring an interview with Derek Gripper that some might find interesting. Derek loves classical guitar but found the repertoire limiting and found his way to playing Kora influenced music on his Hauser.

An example of Derek's style and technique:

If the red arrow in middle of the embed doesn't work then you can use the Fretboard Journal podcast page link and there's video links on that page.

I love this. Thanks for posting.

Also, check out the album, “African Variations: La ronde des oiseaux,” by Cherif Soumano and Sebastien Giniaux.

Very similar idea, done with steel string vs classical. Super nice, and thanks for pointing them out!

Yeah this is great stuff. Classical music is fascinating to study but sometimes it's better to do this sort of stuff that lets your creativity flow a bit more.

An example of Derek's style and technique:

Nylon string guitar playing is about how you play.

Classical guitar is about repertoire.

But until the nylon string guitar is brought to a place where technique is incorporated with better amplification it will not be a more significant instrument that reflects the talents of those who exploit the instrument.

I think it is fantastic to see new creativity.

Why do classical players play Barrios on nylon strings?

Rather than fight the degradation of gut strings in the humidity of south America he used steel strings.

How incorrect!!
