Dave Reynolds "Amazing Guitars, from Renaissance to Rock" "Dave’s presentation was informative, exciting and fun. He took us on a quick tour of the history of the guitar that left us wanting to hear more. His pleasure in sharing his knowledge of the genre was evident, and his playing on these historic instruments was charming. His final original rock selection had us cheering. Don’t miss this!" Linda Boyer, BCTMA Chairman
Dr Dave gave the "Rennaissance to Rock" presentation to our Music and Music Industry Majors at Francis Marion University last week during our recital attendance/performance class, and we had a wonderful time.
It was a great synopsis of the guitar's history from the Oud to today's eclectic and electric instruments including period sheet music, and performances on period accurate instruments, capped off by a modern performance on a Line 6 Variax guitar.
Dr Reynolds' delivery was simultaneously educational and highly engaging, with lots of opportunity for interaction and participation.
The students especially loved the "Show and Tell" portion of the demonstration where they could touch and play the instruments for themselves.
"Great new footage I had never seen before of Mickey! Dave's music is perfectly matched for all the sequences. That is the kind of music that should have been on most other surf videos, instead of loud, bashing background music that doesn't really fit." Ira Nepus - internationally recognized and award winning trombonist
Customer Comment from Amazon Music:"I was not sure what to expect, but am very pleased. The music is mellow, but not sleepy. It has a laid back, beach/surfer vibe and a sincerity that is infectious. I can hear influences of Pat Metheny among others. Very enjoyable, relaxing background music. Glad I bought it and can enjoy it over and over!"
