Ruud and I play Ballad for Jodie

Ruud van den Berg and I have now recorded this rather romantic piece composed for flute and guitar by Jean-Marc Allerme. I improvise with my Silent Guitar on the melody written for the flute. Our recording is illustrated with paintings by Claude Monet. Here, we share two versions of the same recording. This one (which I like best) has some echo special effects on my Silent Guitar:



The second one (which Ruud likes best) uses the sound of the Silent Guitar without any special
effect:

The AROMA quartet plays Cartama

A few months ago, Ruud van den Berg has joined us to form the AROMA Guitar Quartet, with Antonio StangherlinHomayoon Saleh and myself. In our second recording, we play a joyful piece composed by Icelandic guitarist Eythor Thorlaksson. The distribution of guitar parts is as follows: Antonio G4, Ruud G3, Homayoon G2 and Roland G1. Antonio produced the video, while Ruud and I did the audio mix of the four guitars.
