I put together a simple video for this new piece… hope you enjoy it!
Remember that moment when you open your windows for the first time after a LONG, COLD… DARK Winter. That’s what I was hoping to capture musically with this piece.
I LOVE how much potential the acoustic guitar has… at times it seems limitless!
Michael Hedges blew the doors off of what the acoustic guitar could do back in the early 80′s (check out Aerial Boundaries)… and ever since then, there have been many guitarists following the path of Hedge’s tapping approach. I’ve heard some good one’s over the years… but recently I discovered Jon Gomm’s piece “Topeka.”
This has to be one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve heard in a while… just gorgeous! I want to be like Kotaro when I grow up!
