Ido Bukelman: The Door

Read "The Door" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Per il chitarrista israeliano Ido Bukelman la caratteristica principale della chitarra acustica sembra essere la sua capacità di scatenare l'effetto di risonanza.

Read "Ido Bukelman: Solo Acoustic Guitar Recordings" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

At that time, he tended to reference saxophonist Ornette Coleman's harmolidics, guitarist Pat Metheny's clean melodic lines and guitarist Jimi Hendrix's pyrotechnics.
