Hard to classify this, what do you think?

So what genre would you consider this piece I wrote:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oV1dr4k1AUw

That's all just one guitar until 0:56. My guitar friends are surprised when I tell them that there are no overdubs until 0:56. It's just one guitar. They ask how I play section B which starts at 0:18, because they say it sounds like two guitars, but it's not, it's just one.

See if you guys can figure out how I'm playing guitar in the B section starting at 0:18 to make it sound like that.

Also, a soprano sax can sound a lot like an oboe, which it does in this recording. I play tenor sax and I know the wind instruments pretty well, so I know how to get certain timbres out of different instruments, so when I work with other musician's I know what I want out of them.

I'm impressed at how you managed to make your guitar sound like the soprano saxophone that it says is also playing. If that's all guitar, where's the sax?
Really, you're overselling yourself imo. This is basic fingerstyle.

Really nice composition, but I agree with Cavalcade, there is nothing special about the technique. I've heard much more polyphonic pieces.

Your sax ideas are better than your acoustic ideas. Mostly cuz your chord choices are fairly bland suspended chords that just break away from the scale every so often. Needs some spicing.

Well, the arrangement delivers with only two instruments, wouldn't you say?
I mean how would you arrange the guitar part, without it being too busy?
