Three Approaches to Accompaniment for Ensembles and Cantors

In this video, Steve Petrunak demonstrates three different approaches for how guitarists (or any accompanying instrument) can adjust their playing to fit different ensemble scenarios. Steve highlights how he would approach the music if playing guitar as a solo accompanist with one or two vocalists, if playing with a pianist and vocalists, and if playing a solo guitar instrumental version.
