After seeing Joe Satriani live in concert last April, I now had the chance to see another extraordinary guitar player live. In this case it even was an Austrian guitar player - probably the best we have .
Those of you, who primarily play fingerstyle, might know him. His name is Peter Ratzenbeck. He’s an autoditact and started playing guitar when he was 15yrs old.
The concert was a very small event (about 150 people in the audience), and took place at the rose garden of a little ruine of a former castle (very close to where a live ). It had a wonderful atmosphere .
Ratzenbeck plays covers and originals with an incredible perfection and passion…watching him was jaw dropping .
His very first original is titled ‘Odyssee’. You can check it out here: https://youtu.be/MWlIx2YqVeo
Unfortunately, the link is only audio, but this artist is absolutely worth watching him play. As there is no official video of him available on YT, I don’t post a link. But you’ll easily find inofficial videos, if you like to .
Edit: oh, and the most exciting thing is, he will be giving a fingerpicking workshop in November, and I’ve already signed up for it .
