I first came across the guitar work of Gustavo Eiriz through some anonymous audio tests that he had posted under the titles "PCM 1644" and "otra preuba en AC3 256 kbits" and wrote the first version of this blog based on those videos. Fortunately, Gustavo responded to those first videos and identified himself and provided me the link to the final result which is today's video, a solo guitar interpretation of Adios Nonino. The arrangement is by Eiriz himself and he generously shares the tab for the arrangement in the video. He is playing a relatively rare Gibson Chet Atkins CEC guitar with nylon strings through a Mackie mixer. The timbre of the amplified nylon string guitar is warm and full and the playing is elegantly understated. The sound quality is superb. Together, it makes for an unusually beautiful version of Adios Nonino.
