Video of the Month: Berkley Springs

Posted by Brian on 5th February 2011 in Canadian Guitarists, Fingerstyle Guitar, Guitarists, Video of the Month

Berkley Springs is a beautiful guitar tune written by Canadian singer/songwriter David Essig. Written in memory of his mother and named after her hometown, it was originally written in DADGAD tuning. Don Ross wrote his own arrangement of the tune in FACFCF tuning to allow for some different chord inversions. This duet arrangement featuring Don Ross and Peter Kroll-Ploeger is one of the nicest versions I’ve heard. I also love the fact that they really seem to be enjoying themselves while playing it.
