In this livestream, we will listen and compare these arrangements with the actual recordings of the French songs and discuss musical and technical challenges involved in playing two specific ones.

    • James Steadman check also Francis Kleynjans or if you want more easy approach Thierry Tisserand, I love the way french guitarrists arrange or compose- its really "charmant"
