Southern Lament

solo guitar - 4’

Southern Lament, masterfully performed by guitarist Apostolos Paraskevas, must have been the result of a lab experiment that combined the DNA of Francisco Tarrega and Paul Henning. The result is an addictive composition that suggests Tarrega’s Recuerdos de Alhambra with a shot of Henning’s Ballad of Jed Clampett on the side. Who knew that classical guitar music could be this much fun?
