Album Notes
Once again, Edgar gives the audience what they expect in another spectatular live performance.
Listen to "Stump the Musician" where the audience try to come up with something that Edgar can't play? Do they suceeed?
The crowd always expect Edgar's signature piece; Bohemian Rhapsody, if you have never heard it played solo guitar - NOW is the time!!

Great CD
My kids and I enjoyed listening to this CD. A really great buy. There is a part in track 11 where Edgar takes random song requests from the audience called "Stump the Musician". It was fantastic how he plays these pieces from memory. I have been listening to a lot of fingerstyle guitarists and you kind of get tired of hearing just guitar "noise" instead or interesting music. Edgar brings a breath of fresh air to the guitar world with his style of playing and arrangements.
