(Classical) Guitar Heroes!

Guitar Heroes from Naxos/Amazon

Calling all guitar fans … all music fans … here’s a chance to get a whole bunch of guitar music for less than a dollar

Starting today for a limited time, you can download 50 tracks of classical guitar music for just 99 cents.  It’s part of a special project with Naxos Records and Amazon, called Guitar Heroes

Also starting this week, you might notice some extra links on our classical music playlists.

People frequently write to ask how they can purchase a recording they’ve heard on Classical Music with Jim Lange.  Now, there will be direct links from the playlists to purchase recordings on Amazon.  When you buy a CD or mp3 through these links, a small percentage of the cost will be donated to WV Public Broadcasting.

I hope to add links to online classical music site ArkivMusic soon – they are still some technical issues we need to work out. 

Looking for more guitar?  We’ve interviewed a few classical guitar heroes around here previously: XueFei YangChris Anderson, and Glen Kurtz.   Also, Aran Jenkins has written about the guitar-saxophone connection  and posted a Segovia video, and coming soon, Jim Lange (a guitar hero in his own right) will post his interview with Sharon Isbin!

If you spend that dollar to get the 50 tracks of classical guitar music, let me know what you think.  If you like it, share this post with your friends, so they can get this deal and enjoy the music too.
