Chris Portka "Guitar Intertwine (in E)": the memorable passer by on your daily route

Christ Portka is an American guitarist who caught our attention with his hypnotizing, intertwining guitar piece, accurately entitled "Guitar Intertwine (In E)".

Suggestive of the title, the piece is written for one chord/scale and one of them only, namely the E. With one guitar laying a foundation of the finger-picked chord with an altering bass note, the other guitar runs a improv-like course along a dreamy, non-demanding scale, beautifully accentuating the notes that coincide with the ones found on the chord. Somewhat melancholic, but also perfectly comfortable with it, this guitar piece is the sonic version of a lovable passer by on a busy street - noticeable and for some mysterious reason memorable too.
