Eric Thompson & Alan Senauke-Two guitars




Here's one of my favorite flatpicking guitar album. It was recorded in the mid-eighties by Eric Thompson and Alan Senauke, two fine Bay area musicians from the bluegrass-old-timey scene. The interplay between the two guitars in this record is excellent and they made a fine selections of rare tunes, fiddle tunes of course, but also irish, finnish and greek tunes. Here's my rip from the lp:http://www.mediafire.com/?lhzwzyzm3zz

Sounds very good.

Hello Barak, i'm not an expert as you say but i read liner notes and as a musician i can feel that a tune is american, european or something else...

brilliant post. many thanks. two fine musicians and friends of jody stecher as well.

to answer barak- try to imagine how you would dance to each piece. that will at least give you a feeling of what style of music it is, and then you can learn by association; greek music sounds like this because they do this kind of dancing to it...
