Info for Made of Rosewood
On his new album, Peter Finger not only presents new compositions, but also guitars he built during the last decade. Ranging from quiet ballads to powerful up-tempo pieces, all ten works were matched and recorded with a different Finger guitar.
With its engaging twists and turns, Made of Rosewood is best listened to attentively, and its beautiful booklet, with descriptions and color photos of all the guitars used, make it worth ordering.' (Teja Gerken, Peghead Nation)
Peter Finger, acoustic guitar
was born in Weimar, Germany, in 1954 (his father was a conductor). Before beginning guitar lessons at the age of 13, Finger studied both violin and piano.
Since the mid-'70s, Finger has been issuing albums (1975's Detlef & Finger and Bottleneck Guitar Solos, plus 1977's Acoustic Rock Guitar), and toured the world on a regular basis, including shows in his native Germany, as well as the U.S.A., Canada, Japan, England, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, France, Italy, Finland, Poland, Estonia, and Russia. The guitarist then branched out into other areas, including producing music for both TV, radio, and film, plus composing for orchestras. In 1988, Finger founded his own publishing company and record label (Acoustic Music Records), and in 1995, he became the publisher of ~Akustik Gitarre magazine. The '90s also saw further solo releases from Finger, including such titles as 1990's The Colors of the Night, 1995's Innenleben and Solo, 1999's Open Strings, and a ten-track 2001 compilation, The Collection.
