Do you like to listen to music on Spotify? I’ve created our first Radio Guitar Spotify playlist consisting of 7 acoustic guitar instrumental tracks by Pierre Bensusan, Martin Simpson, John Renbourn, The San Francisco Hobbyhorse, John Fahey, Leo Kottke and Stephen Bennett.(If you’re not signed into Spotify already, click on the player and it should take you to Spotify.com to sign up and listen.)
“I’ve been playing electric guitar for the last 21 years. I’ve played Rock, Hard Rock even Heavy Metal, but to me the rhythm is the most important thing in music. I wanted to write a piece of music that would reflect those rhythms but in my new Acoustic trip. I hope you listen those rhythms on “GROOVE DREAMER” – Frank Crespo
You can hear Groove Dreamer and Night from his album A Perfect Circle on the Radio Guitar station.
Tom Sanderson plays a delightful soundtrack to his video of the English countryside, of discovered objects and the guitarist playing his guitar among splashes of light in a shadowy room. The images move along easily to his romantic strolling guitar.
Influenced by many of the guitarists that initially inspired Radio Guitar – Bert Jansch, Davy Graham, Jimmy Page – and also by movie soundtracks, I can see why it all came together.
You can hear Asranda as well as another song of Tom Sanderson’s titled Waiting for Avril on the Radio Guitar station.
“The song was written after a journey through the wooded country lanes of Sussex, England. The landscape is peppered with openings of great expanses of lush green fields,lakes and rural architectural wonder. I wanted to write a piece of music that would reflect those feelings and hopefully take the listener off somewhere within their own imagination . I try to make all my songs evocative and atmospheric. what I love about instrumentals is that they give your mind the space and freedom to fly. The video is my attempt at recreating that drive home .” - Tom Sanderson
