Review of Peppino D'agostino & Stef Burns: Fingerstyle Vs The Fret Burner

I wish I could describe it as the ebony and ivory of guitars, but that wouldn't make much sense, would it? The contrast in the two guitar player's styles, growing up in two very different world of music, actually makes a lot of sense when brought together. The fusion of influences makes for a very dynamic album. Technically, both players are brilliant, whether D'Agostino 'shredding'on his acoustic guitar, or Burns playing sustained leads on an Ennio Morricone'ish tune. Favored Nations Acoustic is a label founded by the renowned electric guitar maestro Steve Vai. Pavarotti and Friends, watch out!
