Rebet GuitaR - Rebetiko, the music crossroad between middle east and west from the early 1900's. Songs about love, joy and sorrow. A musical sub-culture, a music of the lower classes.
"The womb of rebetiko was the jail and the hash den. It was there that the early rebetes created their songs. They sang in quiet, harsh voices, unforced, one after the other, each singer adding a verse which often bore no relation to the previous verse, and a song often went on for hours. There was no refrain, and the melody was simple and easy." Ilias Petropoulos
Rebet guitar, focuses on the early rebetiko with one guitar, finger-pick style developed in USA by Giorgos Katsaros(George Curly), Kostas ‘Gus’ Dousias.
