Somehow, when you're in the throes of depression, listening to truly great depressing music is a beautiful catharsis. I mean no offense in saying that this album contains truly great depressing music, up there with John Dowland and the best of Chris Isaak.

Paredes was (alas, he's no longer with us) a virtuoso of the Portuguese guitar, and this album shows his skill as a composer and performer beautifully. "Cancão Verdes Anos" is by itself worth the price of admission.

I needed some music for a company wine tasting and my friend, who knew i was Portugese, gave me this disc and it changed my life. I live far away from my family and many have passed away, this music is very emotional and reminds me of family what a treasure.From a guitarist perspective the sound is unique and Mr.Paredes is a exteremely disciplined artist. Outstanding.

I have loved great guitar playing all my life and I have to say that Carlos Paredes is one of the best in the world, and definitely of Portugal. This CD exemplifies that great tradition of excellent guitar playing that is present throughout Portugal and now has spread to many other parts of the world. I would highly recommend this CD to anyone who likes to listen to great guitar playing from a man that knows how to play. I would recommend this CD to anyone even if you are not Portuguese, you will not be disappointed.

Carlos Paredes was phenomenal.

Paredes, who died in 2004, was Portuguese. His instrument was the Portuguese guitar. If you want to know about the Portuguese guitar, the liner notes being unhelpful, you have to do a little research. It turns out that the instrument has twelve steel strings, strung in six courses comprising two strings each, and has a distinctive tuning mechanism.

The tunes on this album, the arrangements, and the performances are all wonderful. Since nobody else is credited with any of these, apparently they are all Paredes.

I wish I had the vocabulary to describe this music. You had best sample it. All I can say is, I have quite a few guitar albums, including some I am very fond of by Andres Segovia, and this is like nothing else I have ever heard.

It's no accident that this album has received nothing but five-star reviews.

Carlos Parades is considered a top master of the Fado guitarra! His technique and expression are superb. I enjoy the CD and find it very useful for technique and style study, and for learning the Fado tunes, etc.The instrument is delighful and not impossible to learn! There is a nice selection on this CD. I am collecting more guitarra and Fado CD's and having a wonderful time discovering some neglected "roots".

Sometimes you hear music of a sort you've never heard before and it seems so sublime all you can do is listen and listen again.
I'm so very glad I found Carlos Paredes and this particular item. But I don't know what to tell you.
I just want to listen to it again.

First heard Carlos Paredes and his Guitarra Portugesa on ABC (Aust) Radio National and was blown away. The CD received was everything I had hoped for, there is something about Carlos' music which goes straight to my soul! I have always loved Spanish guitar but this CD has converted me to Portuguese. Maybe it is the vibrato and as well the notes are particularly clear. Whatever, I shall be buying more of Carlos Paredes work.

This is a great CD, where you get to know some of the standards for Portuguese Guitar, as well as some great compositions by this great player. Pedro Caldeira Cabral is, after Carlos Paredes, the best Portuguese Guitar player of our times. It's a great experience for those music lovers who enjoy virtuous playing. It's a must.
