    Hey Brides! For those of you who have used or are using a solo guitarist for your ceremony, what did he play? I would love for the guitarist to play familiar songs like U2's "All I want is you" and classical pieces. Is this possible to give them a list? or is it like a DJ and they have a specific playlist you can choose from (I'm clueless!) Thanks girls!

      If you've found a guitarist, he probably has a list of songs he knows. These are the ones that will sound the best, so start from there - you may find that he has lots of things you like.

      If there's something specific you want, talk with him about it and see what he can do - usually, with a little time, they are happy to accomodate new pieces into their repertoire.

          hi. I'm working with Adan Mijares for my ceremony and cocktail hour. he sent me a list of what some of what he plays along with his demo. Sounds really great. he said if i had any special requests to let him know so he can begin to work on it now. I am seeing if he will play unchained melody for the processional. I will let you know what he says and if he is willing to play it!

                For the guitarist ... are you having mostly instrumentals?

                  Chances are your musician will be able to play anything you want especially if they can get their hands on the notes (most popular songs can be found on the internet). We are bringing our guitarrist down from the states but we gave him a list of songs ranging from Dave Matthews to Country and he learned them in less than a week.

                    I just wanted to let you know that we can play your requests, it would be good to know your list of songs prior to your wedding to be able to practice or learn them if that would be the case. I used to play on a band so I know all types of songs U2, Santana, Jack Johnson, Billy Joel, Pink Floyd, Sting, Beatles, etc etc.

                    In Case you are intrested please contact me and will send you some demos.

                    Thank You, Have a nice day!
