play a classical nylon string Spanish guitar and a steel string guitar in alternate tunings.
I play as a soloist and in several duos with other musicians.

music. Fingerstyle Guitar music is also great concert music especially
when techniques are used, such as altered tunings, harmonic slaps and
two handed tapping.
Unlike pre-recorded music, an experienced instrumentalist can make
