Acoustic guitar albums
Tony Skinner has released two albums of his acoustic guitar music:
Fretboard Stories and The Acoustic Composer .
All music on both albums was composed and performed solo by Tony Skinner.
"Anyone that likes the sound of the acoustic guitar played magnificently will love these albums - they are both beautifully performed, featuring an enthralling display of instrumental guitar mastery from tender passionate pieces to stunning virtuosity".
The albums both feature the exquisite resonant sound of numerous vintage Martin guitars dating back to 1927. The albums were recorded using the very best vintage gear including a 1958 Neumann U47 and a 1964 Neumann U67 valve microphone, with a 1959 EMT plate reverb; both albums were mastered at the world famous Abbey Road Studios in London, resulting in an absolute tonal delight for any guitar lover’s ears.
