Electric Classics – Bruch Concerto No. 1 for Guitar
Digital Edition
Series: Music Minus One
Publisher: Music Minus One
Format: Downloadable - TAB
Composer: Various
Performed by Theron Welch, electric guitar

Accompaniment: Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra

Conductor: Emil Kahn

He's bringing classical music two centuries forward! Lay a Jimi Hendrix vibe over a classical violin concerto, and you begin to get an inkling of what Welch's new Electric Classic album is all about. He's playing the Bruch Violin Concerto using loads of distortion and a totally modern sound. It's a bold path but the music beckons. The music with TAB will enable guitarists everywhere to join a full orchestra under the direction of one of Europe's great conductors, Emil Kahn. Includes a beautifully engraved solo part as well as tablature for the entire concerto, and a digital stereo compact disc featuring complete version of the concerto with Theron Welch as soloist, then the orchestra minus you, the soloist! Also includes a -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniments of the faster outer movements to help you get up to speed!

This is literally the best electric guitar sheet music I have ever seen. It will make you excited about guitar again, like that first time you heard the intro solo to Metallica's Fade to Black. It will knock your socks off ... This is a REAL, legit, full-blown violin concerto note-for-note for electric guitar. If you are not familiar with Bruch's violin concerto #1 in G minor then go listen to it now. The 1st movement is dramatic, the 2nd movement is sad. I don't know what went wrong for the 3rd movement but it is oddly very jubilant and happy. So, I confess I learned only the 1st and 2nd movements. Don't worry; there is TAB for all you illiterate guitar players (like me). I can personally attest that the fretboard fingerings are very manageable and playable. Which is the MOST important aspect of any transcription. Mr. Welch did a fantastic job with the fingerings and the performance on the CD. Although, he uses an very “wet” distorted sound with lots of chorus and a bit of delay. It fits the music once you get used to it. I used to crank this up and play the 1st movement along with the orchestra recording in my dorm room late at night on weekends. You can watch a brief clip of the author playing some excerpts if you search for it at YouTube. The author has a website too with a different (much harder) violin concerto. Play something different. If you think girls are impressed by some lame Linkin Park song then why don't you try playing a classical masterpiece written 150 years ago for violin!
