“Flavio Sala is the new Paganini of the guitar” – Alirio Diaz
“It was very exciting for me to listen to Flavio Sala” – Steve Howe
“Flavio Sala has a great technical ability” – Paco de Lucia

Italian guitarist, with more than 40,000 fans around the world (http://www.Facebook.com/FlavioSalaFans) and millions of views on Youtube (http://www.Youtube.com/Guitargurugu), Flavio Sala is considered the new star of the guitar, acclaimed by critics and audiences worldwide for his incredible instrumental technique, combined with extraordinary sensitivity and musical creativity.
My name is Flavio Sala and I am a guitarist. I was born in Bojano (Italy) on May 9, 1983. When I was seven year old, my father put a guitar in my hands and taught me the first two or three chords. Then I learnt copying my brothers. I fell in love with guitar and really felt like becoming a professional performer, without even know what that meant. I studied at the Conservatory with Pasqualino Garzia and at the “Accademia Musicale Chigiana” with Oscar Ghiglia. Till the age of fourteen I believed that classical music was the best, but after playing and playing it, I started to understand that I could not keep playing the same things during all my life. It was when I discovered Paco de Lucia, Pat Metheny, John McLaughlin, Miles Davis, Frank Zappa, Jaco Pastorius and many others that I started to change and open my mind: since that moment I have been dreaming to become an eclectic artist, I just want to play on my guitar the music I love. I got really fascinated with flamenco, jazz, latin jazz but later also pop, rock and salsa artists/singers: “Why do they look so comfortable, happy enjoying their music and playing, and classical musicians always look like suffering on the stage all the time?” That used to happen also to me and I wanted to cut it down, absolutely!

It was commissioned by Spanish guitarist Celedonio Romero and first performed by Los Romeros and the San Antonio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Victor Alessandro in San Antonio, Texas, USA on 18 November, 1967.

He has been a special guest at the festivals of Salzburg, Israel, Schleswig-Holstein, Menuhin, Osaka, Granada, Istanbul, Ravinia, Garden State, Hollywood Bowl, Blossom, Wolf Trap, Saratoga and Hong Kong.

Since his first recording (at the age of 15) he has recorded over 50 solo albums and 30 albums as part of the famed guitar quartet The Romeros. He has played for Presidents Carter and Nixon, the Queen of the Netherlands, the Prince of Wales and Pope John Paul II. He has numerous international recording awards to his credit and has received an Honorary Doctorate in Music from University of Victoria.

His contributions to the field of classical guitar have inspired a number of distinguished composers to write works specifically for him, including Joaquín Rodrigo, Federico Moreno Torroba, Rev. Francisco de Madina, Lorenzo Palomo, Michael Zearott, Enrique Diemecke, and Celedonio Romero.

Pepe Romero is the second son of Celedonio Romero, who was his only guitar teacher. His first professional appearance was in a shared concert with his father when Pepe was only seven years old. In 1957 Celedonio Romero left Franco‘s Spain for the United States with his family.

On February 11, 2000, King Juan Carlos I of Spain knighted Pepe Romero and his brothers, Celin and Ángel, into the Order of “Isabel la Catolica.” The official ceremony of this high honor took place at the USC Thornton School of Music, and included a gala performance by The Romeros with the Thornton Chamber Orchestra. He is currently Adjunct Professor of Classical Guitar at the Thornton School, where he was named “Distinguished Artist in Residence” in 2004.[1][2]

Although originally a classical guitarist, he is talented in Flamenco and a popular Flamenco performer. His most famous Flamenco-only album is called ¡Flamenco Fenómeno!

Johnny Cash: When Papa Played The Dobro (Flatt / Scruggs)


Johnny Cash



My papa was a hobo when they delivered me

We didn’t have a doctor cause he couldn’t pay the fee

But when the goin’ got too bad to ease his misery
Papa played the dobro this a way and he’d go

[ dobro ]

When company would come around he kept the dobro hid

He knew he couldn’t play the way the other players did

Why the guitar’s resonator was a gallon bucket lid

But papa played the dobro this a way and he’d go

[ dobro ]

Well now that papa’s gone away it’s hanging by the flue

The top of it’s rusted and the strings’re rusty too

It won’t ever sound the way that it did when it was new

When papa played the dobro this a way and he’d go

[ dobro ]


Today’s Birthday: Les Paul

Les Paul (1915)

Paul began playing country music at 14, later switched to jazz, and started his own trio in 1936. Considered one of the finest jazz guitarists, he was famous for his amazing versatility. Dissatisfied with the sound of available instruments, Paul invented a solid-body electric guitar in 1941 that was marketed by Gibson and became extremely important in the development of rock music. Several versions of his prized guitars are still manufactured. What else did he invent? More… Discuss
