In 2007 the Guitar Duo DOS Amigos dissolved, leaving me with the challenge to play on my own after fifteen years, being a solist again. At that time, I had no liking to find a new partner. I thought that would not be feasible before I could manage my own play.
I started digging up old repertoire. I should remember that, shouldn’t I? Well after fifteen years in the closet, the memory of many pieces appeared a bit blurred, or vague at least. Besides, I had to find a method for goal-oriented working, because I was no longer satisfied with playing for myself on the attic alone.
In those days, Kulturhaus NIHZ in Nordhorn organised Open Guitar Nights. Everyone who liked it could play up to ten minutes of guitar music in front of an audience. To me it appeared a perfect opportunity to work on a programme.
I described my experiences in the On Stage Again stories. They are just a click away!
