Rodrigo Y Gabriela - Rodrigo Y Gabriela (2006)

I'd known about Rodrigo Y Gabriela for a long time before I got hold of this and I have to be honest, I'd put off listening just because I expected it to be so difficult to get into. The truth though, is that I couldn't have been more wrong.
The mix of guitar techniques by the extremely talented pair makes for an engaging and fun listen and the percussive nature of the Spanish guitar really stands out, especially to someone who hasn't listened to much music like this before.
Favorite track would have to be Ixtapa at the moment for the violin solo in the second half, amazing!
