Welcome to classicalgas.com!
In 1968, Classical Gas hit the charts with a depth and energy that made an instant connection with a wide audience. Now... 40 years and almost 6 million air-plays later, Classical Gas has established itself as the most famous instrumental guitar piece of all time and the music by which any guitarist, from hobbyist to celebrity, can measure themselves.
Composer and performer, Mason Williams, created a perfect blend of guitar and orchestra that has been recorded by hundreds of artists including guitar legends John Williams, Chet Atkins and Glen Campbell. It's been arranged for hand bells, ukulele, harp and an amazing number of other instruments. Classical Gas has also found a home on-screen as the perfect soundtrack for dozens of films and TV shows.
We invite you to explore our new website and celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Classical Gas and the amazing artist whose unique blend of talents created this legendary hit.
We are thrilled to announce the Mason Williams Signature Guitars line by Foggy Mountain Guitar which features The Classical Gas Commemorative Edition.
