Béla Bartók’s Fourth String Quartet on Electric Guitar

Guitarist Joe Gore (with the support of three versions of himself) brings together dissonant modernism and “Hello Kitty” with this pretty neat arrangement of the fourth movement Allegro Pizzicato of Béla Bartók’s String Quartet No. 4.

And how does this string quartet music sound on guitars? Awesome, IMHO — largely because the movement is played entirely pizzicato (plucked, not bowed). Very few modifications were needed to adopt it for four electric guitars. – tonefiend.com
