As the numerous genres of world music radiate further from their roots, so too does the instrumentation and technique that governs their execution. Greek music has changed in many ways over the last 100 years, most recently by the spread of western popular culture throughout the world. The Mediterranean however, remains a region with a rich pool and history of string playing musicians. Laying somewhere between the ‘oud’ players of the east and the flamenco guitarists of Spain are the bouzouki players of Greece and Cyprus, whose music has been heavily influenced by the tragedy of Greeks fleeing persecution in 1923 from Turkey. This publication pays tribute to the music that stemmed from this period through to modern times via an interpretation on classical guitar. A brief account of the history of Greek music and its development precede numerous classical / flamenco guitar arrangements of songs that have become deeply embedded in Greek culture. Each one of these beautiful arrangements has been carefully written out in standard notation and tablature for non-reading musicians. Listen to all the arrangements contained within this book and played by Mark Hussey on his album 'Spirit of the Greeks' athttp://www.spiritofthegreeks.com
