Rod Alexander – guitar player

 on 


If you pass near the water fountain at Sydney’s Martin Place you may be treated to beautiful classical tunes played on a hybrid of a harp and guitar. The musician who performs these ear catching tunes is Rod Alexander.

Rod Alexander is a finger style guitarist and harp guitarist, born in Australia. He has been playing guitar obsessively for about 15 years. He is influenced by Michael Hedges, Tommy Emmanuel, John Williams and Steve Vai, amongst others. You can hear some of his magic at Rod Alexander’s website.

    My experiance was very similar to David Rogers but with better grammer and it was outside padies markets. I was having lunch I heard the music turned to my mum and said “Wow that’s really good musicwe finished and walked towards the music and to my suprise there was no cd player but a man, a man with a wierd guitar. I’ve been listening to it since it’s just so good my dad couldn’t believe it was only one guitar so i searched his name and found this webpage

    Hi,

    I was passing down right outside martins place fountain today and seen this guy. I walked straight by him but my ears stayed behind…I was about 50 metres past him when I just had to go back (and get my ears) and buy his CD for the bargain price of $10. Thats how I found this blog, I popped his name into google to find out more about him and found this site…I’m gona head to his official site now…

    I guessed right, it’s a harp-guitar. 18 years ago, I often listen and watch a Windham Hill artist Michael Hedges. He played the harp-guitar superbly. Great to find this instrument in your photo. Reminds me of the mind-blowing accoustics this intrument can produce. Thanks for sharing.
