It’s been a busy couple of months! I was recently voted “Sedona’s Best Musician For 2018” in KUDOS Reader’s Choice Awards and then received the shipment of my new Beatles CDs just in time for its debut with my “Rick Picks The Beatles” concert for Sedona Film Festival’s summer programming at Mary D. Fisher Theatre!
Rick Picks The Beatles features my instrumental fingerstyle guitar arrangements of 35 songs from the vast Beatles repertoire in 13 tracks!
I’ve become progressively more well known for my subtle and intricate arrangements of popular tunes and for my approach to coaxing what often sounds like more than one guitar out of the instrument.
With a Beatles repertoire of more than sixty of their songs, the hardest part of putting this all together was deciding which gems to include! Re-experience The Beatles’ vast and varied music from the early hit, ‘She Loves You’, to their later gems including ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’!”
My love affair with the acoustic guitar began over fifty five years ago when, barely old enough to handle a guitar, I first heard the likes of ‘Peter, Paul & Mary’ and the ‘Kingston Trio’. That was enough to get my attention and fire my imagination. “When I first heard The Beatles, I was only 13 and my world was forever changed. I thought, ‘That’s what I want to do!’”
I’ve been very excited about this project as I devoted my undivided attention to polishing and refining my versions of many of my favorite Beatles songs. I’ve been like a kid in a candy store; so much extraordinary music to choose from!
This recording is a musical feast and ‘must have’ for anyone who loves The Beatles! And who doesn’t love The Beatles?!
