Okay, that's two awesome guitarists in a row. Where are you finding these guys?
Good afternoon Shepherd :)I found the first one while listening to PANDORA internet radio.You can listen for free or sigh up.When you go there you can create your own listening "station" so to speak. If you enter "antoine dufour" they will play songs by him as well as other similar artists. Pandora will list the name the song and the album.Try it out :)The guitarist on this post was recommended by Bob at the link. He had posted it in a comment on another thread :)I hope this helpsAlso check out Michael Hedges
Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for the linkage. :)
PISSED, I've got a Pandora account with what I call Kitchen Sink Radio, but nothing like that has popped up yet. I'll definitely add them to the mix though.
Excellent choice, Bob. I just tried out Pandora but my 'net connection seems flaked out so no go yet. Will have to get back to it. In the meantime, here's some old Pat Metheny, New Chautauqua http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEvFx8q1HFoGrrr. Pandora still no go. Off to YouTube for some more Jon Gomm. Mighty fine.
PISSED, I missed your reference to Michael Hedges the first time thru and I just listened to a few of his things. Seems as tho we've been exploring a genre I know little about considering how many new players I have been exposed to. Great stuff! How sad I didn't hear about him until he was gone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Hedges> He was often categorized as a New Age musician due to his association with the Windham Hill record label. Somewhat in reaction to this, he would describe his music as "Heavy Mental", "New Edge", ""Acoustic Thrash", "Deep Tissue Gladiator Guitar" or "Savage Myth Guitar," amongst other terms.Gotta love that. Harp-guitar ... who knew?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTC7kPZZmuMSo much great stuff here, Jon Gomm, Antoine Dufour, Michael Hedges ... wow, just wow.
