Stefano Barbati fingerpicks Jimi Hendrix

Stefano Barbati: The Wind Cries Mary

By Miche Archetto:


Stefano Barbati is an eclectic solo guitar player. Here is one of his best arrangements available on youtube: The Wind Cries Mary. I’ve found this a very impressive and tasteful blend of fingerpicking, percussive techniques, harmonics, and nice chords.


Here is his bio from his official website:

“Stefano Barbati is an eclectic Italian guitar player. His technique is inspired by great acoustic guitar masters like Michael Hedges, Tuck Andress and the Italian guitarist Franco Morone. He sums up in consistent and personal way the variety of musical forms that influence his style. From rock-blues to mediterranean atmospheres, from italian songwriters to southamerican moods, Stefano Barbati’s performance includes covers as well as original music, both showing a stylistical maturity aiming at a marked propension on melodic research. All his music is included on his 3 cds “Il canto del mare” (2003) “Blues de rua” (2007), “Acoustic Ladyland” (2011) released for the italian label”
