The guitar is like an orchestra, claimed Andrés Segovia many times. I completely agree with this statement. I only must add that since Segovia mentioned it last time, the orchestra has quite changed. And so has the guitar. I would like to present my different approaches as a composer to this versatile instrument. I would like to demonstrate some of the new technical resources to obtain new sounds, which I have been exploring and using on the guitar in the last few years. Due to the adaptability of the instrument, I strongly believe that the guitar will take more and more importance in contemporary composition.
