FAQ, Booking and General Policy

A classical guitarist plays a classical guitar instead of an acoustic or electric guitar. Considered as one of the oldest forms of guitar, a classical guitar uses nylon strings instead of steel strings. Ben, our Los Angeles acoustic-electric guitarist is also a classical guitarist.

A rhythm guitarist provides both rhythm and harmony of the song. However, the extent or majority of the music played depends on the needs of the band. However, the rhythm guitarist is an important part of a band and can play alone too.

A classical guitarist can play a wide range of music, not just classical music. This includes jazz music, pop music, or even rock music. For classical music, popular pieces include compositions by Bach, Piazsolla, Vivaldi and many others. There are also a huge number of pop music that are available for classical guitarists.

    Guerra Gutierrez Mortuary, Whittier, California

    Margie and OMG were pleasant to work with, I’m a happy customer! My grandmother recently passed and I wanted to put a personal touch on her services. She loved the guitar and music, we scheduled a solo guitarist. Margie was very helpful and responded back quick to my requests and worked with me regarding the date we had planned. On the day of the services, I could not be any more happier with the outcome! Ben came out, he was dressed very professional, played beautifully! We received many compliments, every song he played on the guitar was marvelous! Thank you Margie and Ben for helping me put a personal beautiful touch to my grandmothers services.
