The Works of Michel Dalle Ave

Michel Dalle Ave Michel Dalle Aveis a professional guitarist, composer, and teacher from the Bordeaux region of France.  His talent is extraordinary and his compositions are both wonderfully refreshing and stylistically diverse.  He is equally adept at composing music in the styles of Classical guitar, Ragtime, Fingerstyle Jazz, Bossa Nova, Celtic, and even Open Tunings.   I am extremely pleased he has allowed me to offer his compositions on this site and I think you'll find his music both challenging and fun to play.  I also encourage you to visit his web site where you can listen to his music in Real Audio form or purchase his CD (many of tunes here are from his latest release).   It should be no surprise that MIDI technology just can't compare to an actual recording and I do encourage you to check out his latest CD "Atico"... it's well worth it!   Also, feel free to send him an e-mail if you have any questions about the music you find here.

The Works of Tom Thomason

Tom ThomasonTom Thomason was born in St. Johnsbury, Vermont, USA.  He grew up in France and Belgium, then moved back to the USA.  He has been living in Sweden since 1969 and in Gothenburg since 1982. 

Tom started playing the guitar in 1966 and traveled around Europe as a busker for a couple of years before moving to Sweden.  He has worked as a guitar teacher and club musician since the early 70's and wrote tablatures for Kicking Mule Records (Stefan Grossman's record company) for almost five years.  During that time, he had the privilege of meeting a number of the world's leading fingerpickers.   His main influences are Stefan Grossman (of course), John Renbourn, Lasse Johansson, Marcel Dadi, Ton van Bergeyk, Chet Atkins and Merle Travis.  To this you can add a number of the great names of country blues.

Tom plays a variety of music including ragtime, blues, early jazz (in the style of Chet Atkins and Merle Travis) as well as contemporary fingerpicking guitar.  He has been arranging classic piano ragtime for the guitar for over 20 years.   I am very pleased that he has decided to share his arrangements with us.   Tom and I both hope you will find this music fun and challenging to play.   Look for much more to be added in the near future.
