Home Strung – the naked guitar

Home Strung - the naked guitar, solo album by Martine Mussies

Summer 2020. Due to the Corona lock-down all my ensembles and concerts suddenly got cancelled. In order to continue to develop myself musically and to make others happy with my music, I started a new project: Home Strung – the naked guitar.

For this album, I play and record cozy homely guitar music – as “live” as a recording can be – in one take, without any edits afterwards. Just me and my guitar. The ultimate goal will be to release an album on vinyl (mock-up above) with 45 minutes of intimate guitar playing – mainly solo, but perhaps I’ll include one or two duets with myself as a bonus track.

Below, you’ll find YouTube clips for Home Strung – the naked guitar. These are recordings of all the pieces I selected up till now. Suggestions and special wishes are of course very welcome! Because I want it to feel like the audience is sitting in my living room, I also share study films via social media. And that way I often get useful feedback, which also helps me to improve my guitar playing. 🙂
