OK, so maybe this is pandering to the masses. So what! The fact is, the new film Star Wars: The Force Awakens is pretty darn cool, and of course John Williams’ iconic music appears throughout. Well, here’s a very nicely arranged suite of themes from Star Wars played on classical guitar by Spanish native Rafael Aguirre to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Alhambra Guitars. Love the opening 20th Century Fox fanfare, too!

Aguirre has won 13 first prizes at international festivals and has toured all over the world. He currrently teaches at college in Dusseldorf, Germany.
