He has a very distinctive style, it's instantly recognizable, if you're familiar with a few of his pieces. Lately I've been listening to Asian Dream Song a lot, mostly because I heard it as part of a medley in a figure skater's program this year. It's gorgeous. Maybe I should attempt to arrange it again. Or at least play it on piano.
I've never tried Daisuke's arrangements, but I've seen them on YouTube, they're very nice. I also know Sungha Jung's done a couple, I learned his for Howl's Moving Castle a few years ago. Unfortunately his arrangements don't work as well on a classical, as well as being less beginner friendly. God knows I was butchering it completely when I first learned it.
Hi, I've never seen the cartoons also, but the melodies and the chords are surpisingly sweet and intricate.
If you like Ghibli arrangements, try this blog http://leonbloyguitar.blogspot.ca/
. Mr. Gonzalez provides his arrangements fro free and they are not too difficult; but they will satisfy your appetite for Ghibli film on classical guitar. If you want more challenges you can try to rearrange them.
