Ole! This week I have a duo whose fancy fretwork just amazed me the first time I heard them, and well continue to do so. They are Rodrigo y Gabriela, a guitar duo from Mexico City by way of Dublin (where they are #1 on the charts). How do you like that McCafferty Himself?
The story goes something like this: met in Mexico City where they are from; formed a Trash Metal Band; decided that was not the way to go to make a living and set off in their current incarnation. That’s the short version. For a little more detail, you can check out their artist bio here from the Bonnaroo Festival. Their metal influences come through in their covers of Stairway to Heaven, Wish You Were Here and Metallica’s Orion which sounds really beautiful here at their MySpace page.
And of course, here they are performing live on Late Night with David Letterman:
Funny, Tali (my daughter) has just asked me what do I rate them. Hmmm, I never gave ratings before, but on a scale of 1 to 10 – I’d say diez!
Right, I’m off to violin with above daughter, so for now enjoy and have a great weekend!
