Fingerstyle Guitar Duets – Doug Young and Teja Gerken

My friend Doug Young, along with Teja Gerken, recently wrote a really cool article for Acoustic Guitar Magazine on fingerstyle guitar duets. They look at various ways to arrange for two guitars, and present a tasty version St Anne’s Reel for two guitars.

Fingerstyle guitar duets are one of my favorite configurations. With two players who both have the ability to play melody, bassline, and inner voicings there are alot of different possibilities. From straight melody and chords to harmony and counterpoint it can really fill out the sound compared to one guitar. This is something I have been wanting to explore in my own music, and plan to use some of the approaches outlined in the article. Definitely worth checking out.
