I first met this guy time ago when I saw a couple of his videos in internet. I thought “this grandpa has some passion”.
Huh, boy! Igor Presnyakov is not only that guy of the videos. He is HUGE, I mean it in the musical way. He became famous alsmost instantly and no doubt why! He is a virtuosos with the rare capacity of making very good covers with an acoustic or classical guitar. Excellent dude and big talent! Just check him out!
This classical song was composed by Mason Williams a long time ago. I remember it was one of the first songs that impressed me, because of the clean sound in a classical guitar. I was really young, maybe 5 or 6 years and the song was one of my first in my personal collection. I even had it in the cassette, and the cover gas a standing classical guitar in a faded blue background with the big letters: “Classical Gas”.
I remember hearing it. I was once and again doing it because Williams hooked me into his sound from the first notes. The time was passing and I even forgot the name of the song but the sound was still in my head.
Years later I found it again with the name and since I like to hear it many times, maybe because I remember my innocent days, I don’t know, but I really like it.
This is the version of Tommy Emmanuel, the picking Master. I’m sorry but I couldn’t resist to share this version.
