Gary Ryan plays Benga Beat

gary-ryanGuitarist and composer Gary Ryan plays Benga Beat, composed by Ryan in 2011. This comes via Guy Traviss on YouTube. I think I’ve featured this work on the site before but this video is so up close and high quality I had to share it again. I like the light nature yet driving rhythm of the piece and also the singing bits. Ryan has a bunch books and sheet music available and he has a real touch for making things work smoothly on guitar. I regularly use his Play Piazzolla (Amazon link) book with my students and want to look at his other works.
