Years ago I did a guitar lesson on Sting’s popular tune “Fragile”. About a year ago I started an acoustic guitar duo with colleague and friend Paul Landsberg. It started out as a Jazz duo but soon we moved on to arrange world music and pop tunes and make them our own. One of those songs was shape of my heart(link to guitar lesson) which was written by Dominic Miller and Sting, and obviously the other was Fragile. A few weeks ago we got together for an hour or two which was just enough to set up the camera’s and recording equipment to capture this take. There are a lot of improvisational elements in these arrangements. We agree on the form, and sometimes fix the intros and outros, but what and how we play things, changes from performance to performance. This keeps it fresh and exciting for us as we never know 100% certain how things will go down.
