TAB Guitar School presents Vol. 6 (Nov. 3-7, 2000)
Especially we had the great honor of inviting the historical guitarist John Renbourn who has left his mark on the music history through many activities such as Pentangle, John Renbourn Group, Duets with Stefan Grossman and so on. His delicate and bold guitar playing is just artistic!
On the other hand, Duck Baker is well known to TAB's customers. He is the big gun whom we regards as the ultimate goal for all fingerstyle guitarists. He was introduced in the radio and CS programs which Mr. Peter Barakan hosts, and his publicity and popularity are rising up rapidly.
Since I was highly affected by John Renbourn, Duck Baker and Stefan Grossman who taught me their musical greatness, this tour brought some special emotion to me. I would like to invite also Stefan to Japan someday.
In these concerts they performed an abundance of guitar duets as well as solos. To my surprise, they arranged their guitar duets in a moment after a short talk since they are congenial old friends. They are a real musician!
Since both of them seem to have enjoyed this tour, I am very glad. We will plan such conerts pleasing you all. Please support our activity for the future continually. Some photos of this tour were uploaded. If you want to look at them, please click "Photo1-16" below.
