Video-of-the-Month: Fragile Balance

Posted by Brian on 15th July 2012 in Fingerstyle Guitar, Guitarists, Video of the Month, Youth

Video-of-the-MonthAs is my custom, I will be doubling up on videos-of-the-month for the summer months, when it is a bit harder to sit in front of a screen writing about playing guitar when I could be outside playing guitar. The second video-of-the-month for July features a young duo from Texas…

Fragile Balance consists of two young guitarists who met in high school two years ago, Nick Cooper and Cruz Lujan. So far, they have released two full length CDs and have shared a stage with the likes of Antoine Dufour and Michael Chapdelaine.

Here they are playing “Elements of Emotion”:

 

Once again, I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for these talented young men…

Video-of-the-MonthFor June’s original Video-of-the-Month we go to Sweden, where we find Salomon Jakobsson.

I have been able to piece together that Salomon is about 17 years old and only started playing when he was thirteen.

Here he is playing his original composition, “Battle of the Brave Frog”:

 

I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds…
