RGC Play List for August 17, 2020 on Zoom

The August 2020 RCG meeting was a round robin session which took place on Zoom, with a lot of friendly conversation in between pieces. The meeting began with a quick update of guitar news including the passing of the legendary classical guitarist, Julian Bream. We discussed Bream’s concert at Alfred University in 1970, his contributions to the classical guitar and his effort in reviving the lute. Members shared with each other how they obtain music – original compositions, books, arrangements (by members themselves, or purchased), and internet resources (Classclef.com, Sky Guitar, YouTube channel, etc.). This led to a deep discussion regarding copyrights and licensing of all sorts. Individual members also shared a wide variety of personal topics: Kinloch recommended the book, Troubadour Chronicle by Harvey Reid, which is a comprehensive account of the self-accompanied singer; Jerry ran down his pedalboard, and John shared his story of how he obtained his Aria guitar (AC-50), which he has owned since September of 1972.
