***new videos have been uploaded to YouTube as of 5/30/09. Please check out the YouTube link in the lower left hand corner to see two new pieces from my upcoming CD as well as The Journey and Kunderkine from this CD.
The Journey is a collection of audio landscapes from my home state of New Mexico intermingled with exciting rhythmic pieces and hypnotic minimalistic playing. The CD will transport you on a musical journey, see what other have said about "The Journey."
The Journey "employs intricate chordal and melodic fingerings...such as tapping, hammering, and open harmonics, reminiscent of acoustic guitarists Michael Hedges and Phil Keaggy. There are nods toward heavy metal guitar expressions as well." Farmington Daily Times
"The music...has a precise flicker and flash...melodies that flow from quick pattering to quiet elegance. The titular 'The Journey' and 'Hymn of Remembrance' are particularly haunting." Arizona Daily Star
"David Rose is one of those rare guitarists who are able to express emotion in music by combining a wonderful melody line, balance and structure. He is a master at creating a rich and vibrant atmosphere with pieces that are both intimate and contain top-notch techniques. In my view, David Rose is one of the top acoustic guitar players." Henk te Veldhuis Bridge Guitar Reviews.
