about

Mediterranean Acoustic Guitar Instrumental in dialogue, question-answer style

STORY
This instrumental came to life one day when I was explaining to my guitar students the possibilities of the Eastern music, and its harmony. In other words, how can one make a blues chord-progression, using the chords that derive from a Phrygian mode.
I suggested that we jam together and try to see what comes out. When they left, I thought that I ought to continue this idea. The resulting 'Dreams in Colour' is the result of that process.
The addition is maybe the fact there are two acoustic guitar conversing with other, a sort of musical dialogue. This gives the real meat and beauty to this composition. This tunes is special to me.

(The technical bit:) It is truly a blues chord progression, with the difference that the dominant chord in the Phrygian mode isn't the 5th step, but the 7th.
