Tony Pusztai: Guitar From Another Planet

Tony Pusztai, two pieces

Okay, I’ve watched this 8 times in a row and I although this is going into the classical guitar category, this is serious jazz as well folks. Good luck being able to breath once you hear this… Tony Pusztai… is one of the most skilled guitarist I’ve ever heard. Maybe a lot of you are going to faint from his dissonant chord embellishments, or maybe some of you are going to think that Tony takes way too many musical liberties.

And then there’s a bunch of you that will shrug this off as a classical performance and not even watch.

Well I’m hear to tell you that I don’t care what kind of guitar style you prefer.

A great player is a great player is a great player, no matter what style or what kind of guitar they are playing.

To me, watching this and looking at Tony’s YouTube views almost makes me sick. I mean come on, 2000 views, that’s it?

Truth is, we’re looking at two pieces that nobody else on the planet earth could pull off here…

Hum… speaking of which…

So… what planet is Tony Pusztai from?

Well Tony is apparently from Hungary.
