Enver IzmailovIt is in your head - the eastern and western touch. Adjusts the guitar if he or extracts audio intervals, the intervals that make our breath freeze ... "Legend" («Legend") Izmailov tells the epic story full of dramatic change: "It's a bad story!" And Enver observes, "written in an unusual amount of 5/8 ... if the count, you get this: 22, 223, 22, 223! "

Mischievous pritoptyvanie feet keeps rhythm, melodic-rhythmic figure in modal counterpoint fragmented improvisation based on sound intervals in the low register. Free, almost avant-garde sound overlay layers, as if pouring from the harp, coupled with rhythmic transitions between light and shadow in different notes once again refers to the mischievous protoptyvaniyu feet.

And Enver already drumming tempo the same melodic figure, but this time in a different octave. His right hand on the guitar neck with headless starts tapping percussion, melodic figure fragmented modal improvisation, covering several modes, tension and excitement of growing up to the point of fine resolution, where it makes a welcome accent.

Solo on "percussion" should be further and guitar sounds like a skin, like a tree, like the throat of a clay pot - South Indian ghatam. And this time the melody intuitively guessed - it sounds easy, like a butterfly's wings flapping, it slows down and calms down, and then there is an illusion of three guitars sound until, in the end, none appear again mischievous tapping, pulsating rhythm, reminding listeners weave in tapestries. Art modal improvisation seems - second nature Enver and his guitar.

Enver Izmailov was born June 12, 1955 in Fergana. There he graduated from the art school class bassoon, but his heart was ever given guitar. Bassoon useful to him during his military service in the orchestra of the Far Eastern Military District, but after returning home Enver his time began to devote guitar. He chose his famous guitar by ear, since no video, no, especially telepokazov popular guitar performers and rock bands at the Soviet time nobody saw polished his technique and style of play.

As a result of multiple exercises appeared guitar technique in which the fingers of both hands are on the guitar fretboard, as the keyboard and the sound is produced by shock or plucking the strings. In most variants of the left hand playing the theme, and right - the bass line or rhythm. Later in the musical environment this method would be called "Tapping» (to tep - banging on the keyboard, tepping - network connection, - Eng.) Proved that this technique is very organic for Crimean Tatar music with its dizzying rhythms and odd crafty melizmatika. When Izmailov "desyatipaltsevym method" derives from its like nothing on earth magic guitar sounds hard to believe that the scene plays just one person.
