The Notion® Classical Guitar expansion pack was recorded by Benjamin Verdery in Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios using a 1995 Greg Smallman guitar with D’Addario strings. One of the most influential and innovative minds in guitar-making for more than 30 years, Greg Smallman is an Australian luthier who has provided guitars for some of the most elite performers in the world, including John Williams and Benjamin Verdery.
Each sample was carefully recorded at numerous dynamic levels in a normal right-hand playing position, as well as sul ponticello and sul tasto, using both rest strokes and free strokes. Surprises in this library include numerous golpe options and unique string-crossing samples, a favored technique that is regularly used by Benjamin Verdery and other composers.
The expansion pack includes the following techniques include: rest strokes, free strokes, standard right-hand position, sul ponticello (at the bridge), sul tasto (over the fingerboard), hammer-on, pull-off, trills, vibrato, molto vibrato, harmonics, golpe, and crossed-string.
