Mike Tamburo - 6 string Guitar

Recorded Live 5/22/06 On WNUR By Mike Corsa
Special Thanks To Mike Corsa and Nick Schillace

Recorded live at WNUR back in 2006, we find Tamburo in full tour mode as a finger picking guitarist. "I was touring with the amazing guitarist Nick Schillace and I thought it would be great to do the tour with just my 6 string - a little brotherhood if you will. I left all of the other instruments, effects, and amplifiers at home and went out for a few weeks with just the guitar. Playing on the same bill as Nick, meant that my picking had to be sharp and focused. He really pushed me and these songs into some new realms. I pulled into WNUR studios in Chicago the day after I dropped Nick off in Detroit. I was feeling tight and ready and was happy to capture these takes - warts and all!!!" Originally slated for release in 2006, these recordings were shelved and alternate takes were buried in Tamburo's Language of the Birds and Other Fantasies Boxset. They are now available in their original intention.
