    Alessandro Finazzo: Percussive Tango

    Italian guitar player Alessandro FInazzo plays here an original rendering of tango music based on pecussive tecniques and strumming.

    Bryan Sutton & Michael Daves- John Hardy

    One Microphone… two guitars.. no pickups, no compression, no reverb, no effects whatsoever.
