The METALLICA debut album KILL 'EM ALL shook and took the world back in 1983. A revelation to many in its rawness and sanguinic abundance. Martin Staeffler discovered METALLICA some five years later and embraced their music dearly. So picking up on a few guitar solos from KILL 'EM ALL recently was a nostalgic move on one hand, and on the other it broadened my array of technical-musical abilities.
This vid contains four spontaneous sessions from early 2020. Go to Youtube.

NOVÉ ETUDY PRO KYTARU by Milan Zelenka / Jana Obrovská

 

Recording these "new etudes" (NOVÉ ETUDY - published in 1974) from Czechia meant a karmic lot to me. Please visit youtube to watch my 3-part-series.
It is my hommage to the czech tradition of guitar playing which I naturally became a part of, i. e. through my conservatory studies with Zdenka Schulz (1996–2001). To her these recordings are dedicated.
