Classical Gas by Mason Williams (1938-)
Classical Gas is a guitar piece like no other, an anthem for an era, the most influential, most played, most loved instrumental hit of all time. This song-written more than 40 years ago-has been used as the theme music for Granada Television’s watchdog broadcast “This is your right” running from 1972 to 1986. Classical Gas is a classical gem-well worth learning. You will become a better classical guitar player by playing this popular song. Both hands will be tested. Plenty of action up and down the neck. Various right hand plucking patterns to deploy and many chords for the left hand to tackle. Devote some time to learn Classical Gas. It is one of those songs, like “stairway to heaven” that music lovers immediately recognize!
