I am trying desperately to catch up with all the terrific music being brought to my attention. Here is a wide spectrum of interesting modern guitar, including a pair of solo recordings from Bill Frisell: one new and one you may have overlooked—I had.
Guitar Moderne is all about the amazing stylistic variety of guitarists practicing their art in the 21rst Century. The zine exists, in large part, to help expose these artists to an audience that might not find them otherwise. In that spirit, here is the Guitar Moderne’s first curated festival of modern guitar. These guitarists offer a wide spectrum of music that employs the instrument in personal and idiosyncratic rather than idiomatic ways. If you like the artists please purchase their recordings and go see them live—Enjoy!
