Irish Guitar Encores

El has concertized throughout the United States, but is now concentrating on guitar instruction, workshops and writing, in addition to composing and arranging pieces for guitar. He has written many books of guitar pieces, including several major folios written or co-written for Mel Bay Publications.

While he plays many styles, El’s music is characterized by lyrical beauty and a sensitivity to melodic phrases enhanced with tasteful arpeggios, cross-picking, and walking bass lines. His uptempo pieces evidence energy and pulse. His artistry has been praised by numerous publications, including Acoustic Guitar Magazine, Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine and Guitar Player Magazine.

El’s music has been hailed by critics as “stirring … unbridled acoustic beauty” and “drop-dead gorgeous” (Guitar Player Magazine) and as a “treasure” (Dirty Linen Magazine).
