Every now and again, it's good for the soul to step back from all the electronics and gizmos to appreciate the elegance of music in its classical form. The Celturian (Martin Lucas) is armed with nothing but an acoustic guitar. This self-taught acoustic guitarist is from Birmingham, Britain, and has a Celtic and classical approach to his pieces. He has gained attention in America over the years, landing himself a handful of impressive events, such as playing live with Iron Maiden. One of his latest masterpieces is "The Soloist".
You are immediately soothed and touched by the elegant and intricate picking. The Celtic and classical style that he is known for shows through impressively, leaving us in a serene state of mind. The tune varies in volume and tempo, making this short track quite dynamic despite it only consisting of one acoustic guitar. This is the mark of an extremely talented acoustic guitarist. He keeps you engaged in his relaxing and peaceful style in not only "The Soloist", but in the rest of his work as well. "The Soloist" is filled with rich textures and layers that will keep you listening to the very last seconds.
It's time to get classy.
