Guitar recording video

A bit like the French 'Jazz Manouche' style - modern gypsy jazz. Someone made a video of a German guitarist playing a difficult piece in what appears to be an ordinary room, not a recording studio.

Virtuoso stuff! Thanks for sharing, Ruggie. I love the way he tunes his sixth string down on the fly at 3:27.

It is a studio, though - Audiospray in Cologne. (The URL's given at the very end of the video.)

Yes, the fact that it was a studio clicked just after I'd posted the thread. (Thought you would have spelled it Köln :) ). I, too, was impressed by the on-the-fly retuning. Suspect he must have some kind of stop set up for the new tension - an unrestrained flick seems well-nigh impossible to get right.

Another thing that surprised me was how relaxed he looked - not even the odd grimace to anticipate the fancy stuff.

I was a bit disappointed by the backing, though. If I were that skilful and invested the time & money for a recording session, I'd have tried to get something a bit more worthy of the soloist.

The son of a German friend of mine is a budding tenor sax player - must ask if he knows anything about this guitarist. It would be worth looking out for CD's of concerts as well as studio recordings.

That always commands my respect when I see that in real musicians. Should be obligatory viewing for the morons that prance around with guitars hanging round their knees - arms flailing - looking like they're about to give birth. :roll:

Proper musicians like this let the results speak for themselves.

I wondered whether it was a backing track he'd recorded himself. Sounds like the same guitar, anyway.

... and the video is a superb lesson in economy and precision of fingering - wihout which he couldn't have acheived some of the results.
