World's Best Classical Guitar Players

There are thousands of fine classical guitar players performing throughout the world.

My intention is to feature not just the famous, but also those guitarists who entertain without getting the recognition their talent and skill deserves.

The music industry can be cruel, elevating performers to fame and fortune while sometimes leaving more talented artists largely unrecognized.

Classical guitar masters in particular deserve more attention as the practice and training required to reach a high level of skill is intense.

Maybe we can redress the balance a little.

Here's a great video by the lesser-known genius, Edgar Cruz.

I'll try to find new classical guitar masters, and give them the exposure their talent deserves. I'm looking for information about young prize winners like Thales Smith and will be adding information as I get it.

Visit the web site of Liona Boyd, the First Lady of classical guitar players. She has a string of successful recordings, live performances and television appearances to her name.

I have to admit that I've only just become aware of the young Italian classical guitarist, Flavio Sala. Another great young talent helping to bring classical guitar to a wide audience.
