Alberto Lombardi

After 25 years as a session guitarist and record producer, Alberto Lombardi fell in love with fingerstyle acoustic guitar. He has performed his arrangements both in Italy and abroad, from small clubs in New York City and London, to renowned guitar festivals held in Sarzana and Ferentino, Italy.

Alberto's arrangements are rooted in the style of the great Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel but also influenced by the 1950's big band sound. His arrangements of American and Italian classics like "Georgia On My Mind" and "Volare" show the inventive harmonic movements from those great arrangers and composers of the times. Alberto also writes his own material, both fingerstyle instrumentals and as a singer/songwriter.

To date Alberto has released 2 albums as a singer-songwriter. As a session player he has toured and/or recorded with Chic's lead singers (NJ Wright, L. Martin), Robbie Dupree, as well as Italian renowned artists Barbarossa, Berté, Groff, di Cataldo, and countless others.

Alberto Lombardi - Fingerpicking Adventures - DVD
Here's what Alberto says about each arrangement in this amazing fingerstyle Masterclass DVD:

Georgia On My Mind is an amazing song! My version is strongly based on Ray Charles's recording. I have adapted his string intro as well as playing this at the end using natural harmonics. Georgia was originally released in 1930. It was a dance tune with lots of 'swing.' So I added rhythm to the verse and chorus using an alternating bass. I combine this technique with some blues/soul licks here and there. I play it in the key of G and modulate to Bm for the chorus.

Volare is one of the most evocative songs ever! The original Italian song talks about a dream where the singer paints himself blue and flies away. My arrangement echoes the era when Volare was first introduced. There are lots of harmonic movements that embellish the melody chord structure. I think the real goal of arranging this song was to keep it simple - yet exciting!

Blue Moon is a combination of Tommy Emmanuel's version and my own arrangement! I learned Tommy's version while I was already working on mine, so I made a blend. My intro uses the chord structure from the Ella Fitzgerald's recording and the Frank Sinatra Brass stabs. Plus for the verse I have my own chord movements. I borrowed Tommy's rhythmic ideas as these truly swing. The strength of this tune is the rhythm.

Tu Vuo Fa l'Americano is an Italian song from 1956. It was used in the film The Talented Mr. Ripley. Brian Setzer has even recorded a rock-a-billy version! I wanted my arrangement to be swinging, danceable, and no fiddling around with changing harmonies but instead finding the best way to have chords, melody, and rhythm work together as a song. I tried also to keep the clarinet/brass lines close to the original. I wanted a nice alternating bass for the rhythm combined with a walking bass line. Putting all the pieces together gives that swing-band sound!"
