The Magic of the Guitar – 4 of 5

Guitar 4

By talking about rock on the previous post, I cannot forget to mention some of my favorite guitarists. They are Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Jimmy Page. These guys played like no other. Their unique talent made them the most important and influential guitarists of all times. However, in my hometown in Brazil there is a famous guitarist named Erisvaldo Borges, whom I like very much. He plays with more of a classical style. However, the most famous Brazilian guitarist is Baden Powell (Yep! His name is English, but he is 100 percent Brazilian). Powell is famous for mixing classical techniques with popular harmonies. I seriously advise you to check him out!

Another thing I cannot forget to mention is the Concierto de Aranjuez. It is the most beautiful and touching classical pieces I know of. In this piece, the guitar plays a fundamental role. Without it, the Conceirto of Aranjuez would not be as magical and beautiful as it is. This concerto has been played by many of the most important orchestras in the world.
