Bream never needed Segovia's personal instruction; he was an equal in all ways!
Also, Bream did own a Kevin Aram guitar. He recorded with it Llobet's Catalan songs on an
album called, "La Guitarra Romantica". It is of course in the Torres/Hauser tradition.
I auditioned an Aram recently. Pretty good guitar, a bit hard to play though. Bream has
always been such a contributor to the effort having guitars built. He may not keep them
forever, but he has had a knack for getting luthiers "out there" just by trying them out.
"the guitar is a woman to whom the saying, 'look at me but do not touch' does not apply. The rosette sound hole is the opposite of a real rose bud, for she will not whither no matter how much you touch her with your hand". --Gaspar Sanz
