Carlos Montoya is my idol - along with Paco De Lucia and Al DiMeola.
A couple years ago I played a Talent Show at a local casino near Minneapolis. (Treasure Island) I won 1st place in the prelim's - but didn't win at the Finals. But thats cool, I got $1000 for the first show. Anyway I played my "Delta Slide Guitar" song - and my second tune was "Malaguena".
So if any of you guitarists are familiar with the famous song "Malaguena" you can hear traces of it in this track. And if you have never heard the song "Malaguena" played on guitar before, you need to hear it! Al DiMeola does a great version of it, and so does Paco. Carlos Montoya's version is way cool with some wicked finger picking.
I've even read where EVH listen's to Carlos Montoya.
Hey Phil - I used a Samick SC-310 classical guitar. It's just a cheapy - I think it cost me like $75. But it gets the job done..
Very Montoya-ish!!! Man I'm gonna keep this piece!!! Sounds like Carlos on his way home from a gig, the feel and all is great. You are truly talented!!! Thanks for your piece!!
