Thread Name: Guitar as accompaniment
Subject: RE: Guitar as accompaniment
I only get the feeling that an accompaniment is "flashy" when it detracts from the lyrics and melody. It's perfectly possible to have an intricate accompaniment that actually enhances the content that it's backing eg - "Canadee-i-o" by Nic Jones or "Erin-Go-Bragh" by Dick Gaughan.
