    a week ago there were a touristic group of french people in the Hotel where i am playing and a french woman had a Guitar with her, she came to me suddenly and started to play with me Air on G string by Bach and continued , the sound was so beautiful with echo in the Hall , i really was thinking before that the Guitar could not be a good couple with the Harp but maybe i was mistaken its so beautiful, and that make me ask here if you can tell me where i can get an arrangements for Harp and Guitar.

    THANK YOU

    Harp and lute too, though at moments you don’t know which is playing what.

    It’s an awesome piece, in three movements and about 16 minutes long.

    I played for a wedding where the bride’s brother was a professional guitarist, and he wanted to play with me.

    the Hovhaness is nice but like Glass

    a lot of repeated material and meditative quality

    it’s nice but audiences might get bored with it

    It’s a very green piece. It really makes one appreciate wood, trees.

    Hello everybody! The harp and guitar get on well very well together, especially if the guitar is electric! :-)

    Well B. I think that you also could do some arrangements for harp and guitar, it would increase our repertoire.

    Ciao!
