Tariq Harb plays Prelude to a Song by John C. Williams (the guitarist). This comes via Harb’s fantastic YouTube Channel. Great playing by Harb as usual. Hypnotic and really nice balance between the continuous arpeggios and the melody. As Harb says, “The great guitarist John C. Williams has composed several beautiful pieces for solo guitar and guitar ensemble which he published a few years ago on his website.” You can find William’s hand-written scores here. I didn’t think much of these pieces when I first saw them posted years ago but hearing Harb play them has really changed my mind, they are great little pieces.
