Goldberg Variations on the electric guitar?
« on: April 14, 2007, 06:06:33 AM »
Here's a link to a video on  You tube that someone brought to my attention.  A young, rather enterprising musician has rigged two electric guitars together in order to play Variation 1 of the Goldberg Variations (repeat not observed. hehe).  It's certainly a change of pace, but I was really struck by how well the work sounds on the electric guitars. 

It's not completely successful, but it's done well enough so that I wonder what this young man will be doing 5 or 10 years from now. ;D

It does sound very good with a nice flow to it.

Someone should tell that young man to start his studies on the harpsichord!  He really has a great understanding of both the rhythm and the counterpoint.

No doubt.  The guy sounds better than some of the versions I have in my music library.
