Hello, it's Blinks here,
I am a classical guitarist currently involved in composition, arrangement and performing.
I have been playing guitar since the age of 11. My early experiences were on electric guitar and I played in a rock group professionally. I started classical guitar lessons aged 21 and am fortunate to have had lessons from many esteemed guitarists.
At the moment I play with a number of other musicians. I have a trio comprising clarinet, guitar and percussion: we play classical, latin and klezmer music. Additionally, I work in duo with a jazz guitarist. I perform regularly with both ensembles and arrange/compose most of the music we play.
I have an eclectic taste in music and especially love the music of JS Bach. Some indication of the range of music I love can be seen in the pieces I am currently working on:
"The Love Theme from Cinema Paradiso" - a splendid arrangement by Nemanja Bogunovic
"Alfie" by Burt Bacharach - my own arrangement
Bach Chorale "Ich ruf zu Dir...." - I am working from the original organ music
I frequently play through latin pieces and find Edson Lopes, a Brazilian maestro, an excellent source of good performance and music scores.
That's probably enough from me for now
Time to practice.
