February, 2011:

Stanley Myers: Cavatina – Deer Hunter

This beautiful piece is wellknown for electric guitars with the Shadows. In fact it is a melody accompained with chords, so good to play with two instruments.

But it is also possible to play it with only one guitar as Julia did in this performance.

There was some noise in the background – the video is made in a public club – so Julia recorded the music again and put it over the original video sound.

And i added some fotos from the last holidays in Tianmu Hu.

Hope you can enjoy it!

Guitar Shanghai Friends Meeting

This Sunday the 27th of February 15.00 o`clock the first Guitar Shanghai Friends Meeting will take place in the classroom near the subwaystation Lianhua Road. (line 1).

Julia will be there from 15.00 to 17.00 o`clock and listen to your guitar. May be she can give you some useful advice and answering your questions.

Because the classroom is small, the number of possible visitors are limited.
So please confirm your coming with Guitar Shanghai (you can find the contact information on this website) . Please confirm before sunday morning 9 o`clock! I will give you the exact adress of the classroom.

There is at least one bad guitar at the classroom, but it is up to you to bring your own guitar. Every performance is warmly welcomed!

Looking forward to see you!

Berimbau by Baden Powell or the lack of Baden Powell videos in the chinese internet

Playing the guitar is more than practising an instrument. It is a creative process, that needs feeling and phantasy.

There are so many technical good players growing up now, but the really charismatic and creative performancers are still very seldom. Speciall if you look to the classical guitar players. Who counts?

For me counts Baden Powell. His way of playing the guitar is what i call charismatic and creativ.
But looking for Baden Powell in the chinese Youku and Tudou, I only could find this singel performance.
And this performance is made by Roland Dyens, another guitarist who counts.

Guitar Shanghai is looking for sponsors and co-workers
