The Rangzen Band and Martin Guitars

Claudio Cardelli was a young boy in the ’60s living in Italy and the Martin guitar was just a dream.
      West Coast music in the early ’70s was his passion, in particular the acoustic sounds of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
This prompted him to own a Martin at any cost. He is now the proud owner of a Martin D-28, OM-42, D-45, 000-28EC, and his “Holy Grail” D-45V.
      Cardelli shares, “The specialty of my band, the Rangzen, is the period from 1962 to 1972. We perform Beatles songs, many of the Stones, the Who, Kinks, Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, The Doors, etc., but it is the West Coast that expresses the best of my acoustic guitars.
      “We play our Martin in ‘Guinnevere,’ ‘In My Dreams,’ ‘Marrakesh Express,’ ‘Deja Vu,’ ‘Carry Me,’ ‘Teach your Children,’ and many other hits of CSN&Y, and always play with the D-28 all the acoustic parts of the Beatles, Stones, Dylan, etc. We use a lot of open tunings (open G, Emin7/4,
open D, etc.) that are essential for the proper atmosphere of those wonderful CSN&Y songs.” Check out the band at rangzen.it
