Ulli Boegershausen "More Personal Favorites"
The great success of Personal Favorites has motivated me to put out a further compilation of arrangements from recent years.
Highlights from this new volume include Bob Dylan's beautiful ballad Make You Feel My Love, for which my arrangement is closely based on Adele's sensitive interpretation, Bryan Adams' famous Everything I Do and jazz singer Norah Jones' spirited composition Sunrise.
To complete the book I have included a number of original compositions. For this purpose I chose the four pieces of my Northern Suite, including In a Constant State of Flux, which enjoys a similar degree of popularity to the arrangements of pop songs on my YouTube channel. All four pieces were composed using the same open tuning, where both E strings are tuned down a whole tone. The capo is on the fourth fret. In this suite I make frequent use of the dorian minor scale, which gives all four pieces a Nordic, Celtic character.
It's a special pleasure for me to have been able to include the wonderful song Du bist das Licht by my Lakewood buddy Gregor Meyle in this compilation.
