Impariamo a suonare la chitarra fingerstyle

Read "Impariamo a suonare la chitarra fingerstyle" reviewed by Mario Calvitti

Nell'accezione comune contemporanea, la chitarra fingerstyle è la più moderna evoluzione della chitarra fingerpicking, ovvero quella tecnica strumentale per suonare la chitarra con le dita (o con dei plettri speciali) nata in ambito prevalentemente folk-blues fin dagli anni '20 dello scorso secolo.

Charlie Hunter: Public Domain

Read "Public Domain" reviewed by John Kelman

There's no particular insight in the suggestion that most musicians lay their musical lives bare through their recorded work: near-instantaneous, fully formed leaps into greatness for some; more gradual upwards curves for others; and for all, even the occasional misstep. Still, there are times when it seems as though a little discretion would go a long ...
