ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Outstanding Instrumental Album
2008 Western Canadian Music Awards

Bob Evans is an award winning, Canadian finger-style guitarist. He combines an eclectic mix of contemporary finger-style guitar and traditional roots music along with a warm vocal style, tilted sense of humour and down to earth stage presence to provide a refreshing performance experience.

4 on 6 is a collection of 12 classic tunes by The Beatles he has arranged for instrumental solo guitar.

Of The Beatle's music he says, "I grew up with their music as the soundtrack to my youth in the '60s. Now, some 45 years later, I still can’t get the songs out of my head. The melodies are so strong and the chord progressions so malleable they can easily be bent and reshaped without breaking. This makes them ideal material for arranging for guitar."

On 4 On 6 he explores compressing some of his favourite Beatles tunes on to a single guitar. Some of arrangements simply try to capture on six strings the energy and spirit of the original, while others capitalize on the freedom the richness the source material offers up for reinterpretation.


Reviews
------------

" This is a refreshing and fun set of truly great songs played with a great sense of humour and impeccable technique by a true master of the guitar. Bob Evans has a quick witted sense of fun that could only be based in a warm love for the music and endless hours of playing these tunes to evolve this inspiring set of arrangements."

David Smith – DaveSmithMusic.com


"Evans, the U.S. National Fingerstyle Guitar Champion of 2003, can wring all manner of nuance from his instrument, with a surgeon’s deftness and a metronome-like sense of meter. He nicely transforms the rocker “Help!” into a quiet ballad to reflect Lennon’s heart-wrenching lyrics. “Rain” gets a moody spin and “Things We Said Today” rebirths with a new ache."

Great Album
If you like the Beatles' music, you'll likely love this excellent finger style album of some of their great tunes. II'm buying like my third copy because I lend it out and it never comes back! Personally, as a guitarist, too, I learned Bob's cool arrangement of Things We Said Today. But someday - I'm gonna get down the beautiful and challenging arrangement of All My Loving!

Great arrangements
These are unique and fresh arrangements of familiar tunes. Evans makes each one his own with new harmonizations and licks that fit the tracks well. A very well thought out and carried out project.

Bob Evans / Beatles
This was a refreshing way to hear some of my favorite Beatles songs done in a manner I have never heard. Being an aging ex-guitarist I always love hearing great songs accoustically done, simply and clean. Very soothing.
