The captivating combination of fingernails on nylon strings and fingertips on steel strings creates a rarely-heard fusion of classical and acoustic guitar voices. This cross-disciple synthesis gives Skanson and Hansen the creative latitude to bring melodic classical guitar mastery to Folk, Rock and Pop songs while infusing timeless masterpieces with acoustic fun, and funky, rhythms.
Darren and Gregg describe their musical pairing double-finger style guitar. Both play the melody, chords and bass line simultaneously, creating a sophisticated, closely-woven sound that fully expresses the song’s melody within a rich harmonious musical landscape. Skanson & Hansen, in the best tradition of itinerant musicians, blend their guitar mastery with well-honed humor about developing each arrangement, hilarious anecdotes about performing on the road and funny insights about how they decide who gets to “star” in each their compositions. Their motto is, “Two Guitars Can Change The World!”
