    Sounds of Wood and Steel

    I bought this older CD because I heard one of the songs played and enjoyed it. Several other viewers commented also that they would like to purchase the music. This CD consists of guitar music that is challenging, and generally soothing. One song is of a flamenco style, and it is impossible to not get up and move around with it. The songs are all played by different guitar players and the music is pleasant.
