La Orquesta de Guitarras de Barcelona Vids

The Classical Guitar Society of Victoria Guitar Orchestra will be giving its first performance for 2012 this afternoon (head to www.cgsv.org.au for details), which I’m very much looking forward to playing in I might add!

To get you in the mood for this afternoon’s performance I thought I’d share some videos of one of my favourite guitar orchestras, the Orquesta de Guitarras de Barcelona. They display excellent musicianship, all of them playing their parts from memory, and creating some truly fantastic sounds and tone colours.

Check them out…..
