ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This recording has been reviewed in the May-June 2018
issue of the Minor 7th: http://www.Minor7th.com

(http://tinyurl.com/dreamguitarists) He has arranged Celtic, spiritual and

Album Notes

This 77-minute recording, "Celtic Guitar Treasures," contains some of El's favorite tunes recorded
over the last 24 years. The word “Celtic” is broad, including the poignant song “When You and I
Were Young, Maggie.” El is grateful to his two engineers and friends who mastered the original
tracks, the specifics being indicated below. (Marc Moss compiled and mastered the tracks into the
final recording.) The guitarists and other musicians who have inspired El are too numerous to
mention, but he thanks them collectively -- and also his family for their love and patience in
allowing him to pursue his musical passion. He also thanks Nick Kukich
(www.franklinguitarcompany.com) for creating the El McMeen Signature
Model guitar, pictured on the cover.

Finally, and most importantly, El thanks his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
for the grace to make music on the guitar.
