Blast from the Past: My former life as a guitarist (2006-2016)
Being a professional session guitarist for more than a decade I had the chance to collaborate with plenty of musicians and band projects.
Listening to my own music now always reminds me of how important it was for me to watch and learn from all of them. Latin, Flamenco, Jazz, Pop and of course the music from my home country – traditional greek music, Rembetiko and folklore – will always be part of my life and reflect on my own songs.
So, here are some video recordings featuring myself as a guitarist. Enjoy.
This is the whole video recording from the Timna Brauer & Elias Meiri Ensemble Live DVD “Songs from Jerusalem” (℗ Preiser Records), performed at the Stephansdom in Vienna:
And here’s is the whole 2014 video recording from the album “Yiddish Tango” (℗ Preiser Records) with Timna Brauer & Elias Meiri Ensemble:
Here is another one that I found. This is from my time with World Music band “Global Groove Lab”. They are still out there and I’m still a huge fan. Check them out.
This was with Habib Samandi from Tunis from whom I learned a bit about North African music, vocal improvisation and a lot about rhythm.
This is a clip with Flaco de Nerja who taught me the Flamenco and with whom I shared the stage for many years. Check this man out!
And this is a project with three kickass guitarists, the Vienna Guitar Quartet featuring Flaco de Nerja, Mahan Mirarab, Rainer Maria Nero and my humble self.
I’m sure there are many more videos and bootlegs somewhere out there. Those are just a few memories from ten years full of music and guitars.
To all guitarists out there: Practice your scales, arpeggios etc. but never forget to tap your foot, as a wise man once said…
