I’ve been teaching acoustic fingerstyle guitar for over 40 years! I especially enjoy helping developing guitarists find their own “voice” on the guitar and develop techniques to create their own arrangements of songs and pieces of music as solo fingerstyle guitar pieces.

“Rick Picks The Beatles” Concert Returns to Mary Fisher Theatre 9/28/19

Posted by on Jul 22, 2019 in gig news!

Rick Picks The Beatles!

Mark your calendar! Fingerstyle guitar master, Rick Cyge shares your favorites from The Beatles at Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Saturday, September 28, 2019. Recently voted “Sedona’s Best Musician” in KUDOS Reader’s Choice Awards, Cyge performs all the subtle harmonies and intricate counterpoint of the brilliant music of The Beatles instrumentally on solo acoustic guitar. The evening promises an uplifting and nostalgic journey into shared musical memories of the past! The concert begins at 7:00 p.m. and tickets are on sale now.

Respected and admired by peers and fans for his playing finesse and prowess, Cyge’s compositions and arrangements show off his intricate approach to enticing what often sounds like multiple instruments out of his guitar. “For this special concert, I invite you to enjoy the ‘Fab Four’ performed on one guitar!” Cyge said.

With a Beatles repertoire of over sixty of their songs, he comments, “The hardest part of putting this concert set together is deciding which gems to include! Re-experience The Beatles’ vast and varied music from the early hit, ‘I Saw Her Standing There’, to their later gems including ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’!”

See the exciting “Rick Picks The Beatles” show at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. Mary D. Fisher Theatre is an intimate space and can sell out quickly. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door and are available at the Sedona International Film Festival office or by calling 928-282-1177 or online at www.SedonaFilmFestival.org.
