Peppino D'Agostino's Minestrone Music Page

Peppino D'Agostino's Minestrone Music Page: "Peppino's guitar techniques cover a variety of styles--contemporary acoustic, classical, open tunings, and percussive techniques. In performance, you are just as likely to see him playing an egg shaker or a maraca with his right hand and getting notes from his guitar with various left handed tricks he's developed over the years. Peppino says, 'With solo guitar, in my opinion, you really can express all that a guitar can express: bass line, midrange--you're a mini orchestra.' When asked to give his music an appropriate label he had this to say: 'Ten years ago, it was called 'New Age'. Ten years from now, who knows? Maybe 'Minestrone Music'.'"
