Most experienced classical guitarists are aware of the great Guitar composer and player, Francisco Tarrega. Guitarists that don’t know of him could benefit to a great extent by listen to at least some of his many famous Guitar compositions.
Even if Spanish Guitar’s not your thing, there’s a multitude of very good Guitar ideas in Tarrega’s Guitar music. What I’m getting at, is that Tarrega’s music is a first-rate source of inspiration.
I’m sure you would be surprised by what some of the best Guitar players in the world today listen to. For instance, legendary guitarists like Marty Friedman, Steve Vai, Jeff Loomis, and more have stated that they like listening to diverse styles of music apart from the style they’re involved with.
Alright, that’s enough of me trying to sell you on the idea of expanding your musical horizons. I’ll now get down to the Guitar tee design. A old photo of Francisco Tarrega, who lived between 1852 and 1909. I was quite keen on keeping the old black & white picture as is, so I didn’t tweak it too much because I wanted the contrast between the old pic and the modern chair.
The initial inspiration for this Guitar tee design was to put Tarrega outside his own time. In other words, Francisco Tarrega enjoying time travel, thus, the funky modern chair. And as you can see by the slogan, it is chair number two. Yes, that’s right, there are more designs with Tarrega in different chairs.
So for this design, I took Tarrega out of his original chair, got rid of the background, added a cool modern chair for extra comfort. Lol. I kept the original foot stool, because it looked strange without it.
Additionally, I created subtle shadows in various areas with a colour overlay effect. There’s also some colour balance, saturation, and highlights as well. At the completion of this Guitar t-shirt design, I was quite pleased with the end result: Tarrega travels into the future to be seated in an unusual chair. Lol.
