I first saw Roger Wang’s performance in Penang Jazz Festival a few years ago. When I found out that he will be performing at the Penang PAC as part of the George Town Festival, I was really excited, and wasted no time in getting my ticket. What can I say,…it was a great show. I was definitely not disappointed, and very happy to be sitting at the second row. Instead of going into the techniques (since I’m not a pro),..I’ll just say that I love the entire show but my favourites were his rendition of “The Moon Represents My Heart” and “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”. I also like that song he played on the harp guitar. Not forgetting “Initiation” (by Tommy Emmanuel). It blew me away – I’ve never heard those sounds before and didn’t know that one can make those sounds by using the guitar.
If you missed his concert,…too bad,…don’t miss it the next time around.
