Arie Kanarie


Hi, my internet alias is Arie Kanarie. I'm 30 yrs old, scientist, and a guitar player.

I've been playing guitar for 12 years now. At first I started out playing deathmetal on my electrical guitar. I got in a band (Mordor/Columbian necktie) and we made some heavy stuff, unfortunately, non of it exists today (one video tape, not in my possession).

After like 4 years I bought an acoustic guitar. I only knew how to play 4 short intro's or pieces of songs, and didn't learn much more in the following years. For almost three years now, I am fascinated by the classical guitar and its beautiful sounds. Thanks to the internet I got to learn how to play any piece that I liked, a great motivation to get back to learing how to play the classical guitar.


Music Arie can play on the guitar (from the head)

  • Classical gas (Mason Williams)
  • Air on a G-string (Bach)
  • Study Am (Tarrega, quite fast, but no pro yet)
  • Recuerdos de la Alhambra (Tarrega, intermediate tempo)
  • Canon in D (Pachabell, learned at wholenote, great song to play together with someone else!, see my favorite lessons)
  • Remembranza (Andres Segovia, beautiful piece, not so really hard on intermediate tempo, impossible at Segovia's tempo)
  • Asturias (I finally mastered the difficult chord!!! Still have to memorize the slower part in between though)
  • Fur Elise (Beethoven, I only knew the familiar melody, but now I translated the entire song, check my lessons!)

Arie's guitar

Below you can see my guitar. It's a handmade guitar from 1967 (older then I am) constructed by Oscar Teller. It doesn't just look awesome (very rare flame on the top blade) it plays fantastic and has a beautiful sound.
