Watch the Perestroika online guitar lesson by Stephen Bennett from Harp Guitar Basics

I am probably too relentlessly critical of my playing. But I will tell you that I played it a little too fast here! I'm watching the playback several months after recording it down at TrueFire Studios in Florida. So slow your version down and it will be better than mine here. If this was a live performance cd - as opposed to the instructional project that it is - I would get on a plane back to St. Petersburg and do it again. That's not necessary because what's here is way more than sufficient to impart to you what needs to be.

Just a reminder: when you hear the original recording of this tune, it has a second guitar enter midway through: that was me playing on a 6-string. It's on my Solos & Duets cd from 1992.
