To outline Peter Finger’s resume in a few words is almost impossible. He is the founder of the Acoustic Music label, publisher of the magazine AKUSTIK GITARRE, initiator of the international guitar festival Open Strings, and the operator of the Lutherhaus, a cultural center in Osnabrück. Above all, however, he is a famous acoustic guitarist, whose outstanding virtuosity and creativity became the cornerstone for an international career in the fingerstyle guitar genre.#
After more than 20 albums, countless concerts, workshops and expert columns in the media, Peter Finger is now inviting listeners to enjoy the re-release of his early work “The Elf King Peter Finger – Acoustic Rock Guitar". In 1977, at a time when the “unplugged” format was not even a thought, and the acoustic guitar scene was mostly doing blues, ragtime and fingerstyle, this Weimar-born artist presented ten instrumentals with a connection to rock. With open tuning and his renowned technique, he generates great musical depth, thrilling dynamics and the kind of rhythmic energy that only few soloists can achieve.
