As a composer and performer of a kaleidoscopic mixture of selections for the 6 and 12-string guitar, Richard Gilewitz may be best known for his quirky outlook on life. This solo performer combines quips and tunes with a little history to deliver a timeless picture of American and European fingerstyle guitar. "Fingerstyle Guitar through Time" is truly a magical journey of instrumental music, tales from the road, and a few laughs along the way.

Incorporating his own personality and orchestration into this sound tunnel of timeless musical history, Richard delivers a musical pallet filled with colorful imagery of samples from European, Contemporary, and Spanish Classical works to the Traditional Folk, Blues and American Primitive eras. Combining both standard and unique tunings with his interpretations, every single note is treated as an individual character in a society of notes. As he appears to achieve a three-dimensional sound that is very distinctive, it is apparent that Richard's own DNA is reflected in his playing.
