This past weekend Vickie and I went to Hollywood California to attend the 35 year class reunion of my old music school, Guitar Institute of Technology also known as G.I.T, now called, Musicians Institute. This was the MOST FUN I have had at a musical event in 30 years!

A Part of My Soul Got Fed at this Reunion That I Didn’t Even Realize was Starving!!! (I wonder if something else is starving inside of me that I am not even aware of still? Hmmm.)

Back in 1980, just after high school, I attended Guitar Institute of Technology. At that time most of my training was focused on classical guitar however, I could play a few rock tunes. G.I.T opened up my vision of Fushion, Funk, and JAZZ guitar.

Prior to attending G.I.T., I had never heard of Jazz Guitar Greats as Pat Martino, Joe Pass, Lenny Breau, Joe Diorio, Howard Alden, Les Wise or Ron Eschete. Then there is guitarist Larry Carlton of Steely Dan. Blues, Fusion and Rock Specialist Don Mock, Danny Gilbert and Keith Wyatt. Read more

Andres Segovia – Bach Prelude Cell Suite 1

Filed under: Classical Guitar, Guitar Videos 

Andres Segovia, was one of the most influential Classical Guitartist
of the 20th century. He really opened the door to developing
the classical guitar repertoire and he did that by commisioning
compsers and making his own transcriptions. This is one of my
favorite arrangements of Bach’s Prelude from the 1st Cello Suite.
