Classical Gas is an instrumental piece composed and played by Mason Williams in 1968, winning three Grammy Awards. The original version of this song is orchestrated, but in 1970, Williams has also created a version for solo guitar. This track was proposed as a cover many times, to name one, the version of Tommy Emmanuel, even if it is just for acoustic guitar is very energetic. It’s not an easy song, but is very fascinating to play.
If you like energetic music played with classical guitar, let me also suggest you “A Mixolydan Samba“, that is a composition of mine. Thank you.
