Guitare seule

20 p.,


Swiss-born Kindle has produced of top-class music in many varieties of styles and for many different combinations over the years. This latest set emulates the many and varied musical forms taken by rock in all its different guises.
So we start off with a piece instructing the player to treat straight written quavers as a triplet rhythm of crotchet/quaver. Low bass notes are occasionally to be bent and the whole piece is very riff orientated, and dotted with parallel fourths, and octaves that leap around the fingerboard. Blue Moon, takes the note bending a stage further introducing into the treble melody. Then a series of evocative arpeggio-based runs take the piece into slightly unexpected territory, but one that really works! Derwish instructs the player to retune his fifth string to B, and the relentless nature of the semiquavers makes this exciting and one of the most tricky at the same time. Globetrotter is in a mixture of sevens and fives with a middle idea in 4/4 and an interesting little piece to boot, whilst Hot Dog and On the Rocks are more openly rock based and sound like riffs Deep Purple might have had a go at.
This is a fine set. Nothing is very difficult but it's not very easy either, so beware. As always, this is another fine volume of quality work that should be snapped up by all lovers of this man's music, or alternatively anyone interested in trying such rock based styles out for themselves.
