Flip who is an Adjunct professor of guitar at County College of Morris, Randolph and Seton Hall University South Orange, NJ  -   kind of changes things up here by playing a classical style guitar (I’m used to hearing him on an archtop electric or a steel stringed acoustic). What’s interesting about this project (yea, this […]

And he’s got the vibe for this and really captured the flavor (attitude!!) He’s already got a nice amount of views on YouTube but let’s see if we can […]

  • Steve Bean: Closing the Circle

    Steve Bean: Closing the Circle

    English guitarist Steve Bean is featured here rendering “Bohemian Rapsody” by Queen on a classical guitar. What I’ve found interesting in this video is that Queen’s composition brought a taste of classical symphonic music in their music, resorting to plenty of overdubbing and studio work. And “Bohemian Rapsody” is probably their highest peak in this direction. In a sense Steve Bean takes back that music to the roots of its inspiration, playing it completely unplugged on a classical guitar. Here […]

  • Jonathan Lane- Imagines Imagine (John Lennon)

    Jonathan Lane- Imagines Imagine (John Lennon)

    Here’s guitarist/singer Jonathan Lane with John Lennon’s “Imagine” or should I say, a remnant of the original, as this is what I’d call completely different except, he’s using the original words (but changing the chords and the melody completely). Jonathan Lane’s version is a much more sorrowful song with the sad minor chords- it’s almost as if it’s a last ditch plea for human sanity instead of Lennon’s hopeful melody. Jonathan is almost saying,, is there ever going to be […]
