Bonus videos recorded with the owner of the guitars

Jun 2, 2019

You've Got a Friend – one of the two songs I recorded with F.L.O. – the owner of all the guitars I used on the album. The full video is a part of the bonus content that you can get for contributing in the crowdfunding campaign. Thank you for your support! 💙

F.L.O. is a luthier and we use guitars he built in this video.

This project is not just about music. You will find photos and information on every song and guitar in the booklet. If you play guitar, you can even learn the songs from a TAB book.

Wheel Hoss and the Holy Grail of bluegrass guitar

May 29, 2019

My playing will always have roots in bluegrass music and therefore I have to include a song from the father of this genre on this album. Bluegrass guitar? Martin D-28! Although I am fonder of the sound of guitars with mahogany bodies, this rosewood queen does not give a poor picker any hope of not hopelessly falling in love with her [insert G-run here].

Reward for every guitar player

May 27, 2019

One of the rewards you can get for supporting the album Overtones is a package for every guitar player. Besides the CD, bonus content and a TAB book, you will get a guitar lesson – either a 60-minute Skype lesson or a package of all guitar videos available in the ATAmusic e-shop. No matter how advanced you are, this reward will definitely help you on your guitar journey. 

Wildwood Flower

May 23, 2019

Almost every bluegrass guitarist learns this popular song in his/her beginning. It has been played and recorded by a lot of artists so I tried to make my arrangement true to the melody, yet somehow new and interesting. My choice of the twelve-string guitar for this tune helped me in this respect. It is not often used as a solo instrument and I soon found out why. However, I do not regret the choice and I am glad to have this spring beauty on the record.

Design on the way

May 22, 2019

Great graphic designer (and fiddle player!) Slávka Franclíková takes care of our visual experience from the album. I think she's doing a great job and I look forward to the final result!

Booklet

Grandfather's Clock

May 20, 2019

Another teaser from the album – Grandfather's Clock is a song from 1876 and I recorded my version of it using a very interesting guitar built in 1926. I combine several techniques here, like Travis picking, crosspicking, and left hand tapping. Because of its unusual dimensions, it's not easy to play this guitar. But I just had to have this on the album.

Homage to Michal Vavro

May 14, 2019

I've met many people on my musical journey. One of the most important for me is Michal Vavro - Slovak guitarist and my bandmate from East-West. A medley of 4 songs of his will appear on this record as a tribute to him. Here's a teaser:
