Sometimes it seems like listening to Classical Music is like visiting a history museum: everything is old, a legacy of people long dead. Guitar is not like that - there is still a thriving classical guitar scene in Spain and Portugal. Carlos Paredes was a master, active pretty much right up to his death not so very long ago.
Paredes is a great example of how Portuguese guitar differs from Spanish guitar. It has more of an eastern influence, perhaps from Portugal's moorish past, and delights in sad, minor keys - an echo of the Fado songs that have been the Portuguese equivalent of the blues.
