Welcome

Neil Beckmann is a guitarist dedicated to giving compelling performances of music both well established and ignored, expanding the guitar's repertoire in both solo and chamber settings through collaborating with composers, and has a strong interest in finding and developing repertoire for various instruments from the plucked string family, currently including classical, acoustic and electric guitars, lutes, banjo, ukulele, and trash instruments.

Here’s a performance of Tyler Eschendal’s piece, This City Is a Stepping Stone, for solo prepared guitar, using a thank you card woven through the guitar's strings and strumming and scraping with a credit card, to explore the percussive qualities of the guitar.


Performances!
