How classical guitar playing can influence different popular genres

Duration: 07:12

We meet a young musician who plays electric guitar and is inspired by classical guitar techniques. The similarities and differences associated with both instruments are compared through a series of demonstrations. Guitarist Robin Hill shows how classical music has influenced rock music and why he thinks that classical guitar techniques are important to master in order to progress in any guitar genre. The gap between classical and contemporary guitar music is narrowed. Vic has been selected to perform at the Royal Albert Hall as a member of Fazer’s Urban Symphony Proms performance.
