Cenk Erdoğan: Fretless - Fretted Guitar

“Karakutu” is based on my solo compositions finished in three years.Karakutu can be translated like “BlackBox”.Blackbox is a device that records every moment of a plane flight.This box never crashes.Sometimes it can be lost but at the end always founded.
These compositions are expressing three years of my life and musical journey.This time i played “solo” with all acoustic (fretless&fretted) guitar types and different tunnings.If you have this music with you it means that you opened the box.
