This upload was 1st in the Chill chart , 1st in the Instrumental chart , 2nd in the Chillout chart and 2nd in the Ambient chart .

I love moody guitar music. In an earlier mix, Mysterioso, I included a cut by Dead Combo.  Their music was new to me.  I was interested to learn from a listener, Jorge, that they are from Portugal and have achieved cult status there. 

Jorge directed me to a mix he'd done with a Dead Combo track.  I love the mix, give it a listen Here it begins...

His other mixes are excellent as well.

After hearing his mix I just knew I had to create a guitar based mix that was a bit spaghetti western and dusty, moody, twangy with a little Latin feel. And of course ambient touches.  The result is this new mix, Guitarissimo.  I stole that title from an album by Roxy Music guitarist, Phil Manzanera, who also has a track in the mix.  I tried not to steal too much from the "Here It Begins" mix but I just had to use the Yo La Tengo song from that mix in this one too.

Tracklist is in the comments.
