Biography

John Fahey (February 28, 1939 – February 22, 2001) was an American fingerstyle guitarist and composer who pioneered the steel-string acoustic guitar as a solo instrument.

Format: Audio CD
This CD provides an outstanding overview of John Fahey at his best as both performer and composer. Melodic, original, engaging solo instrumental pieces played with real attack and gusto. It covers a period when Fahey was really sharp and focused and his playing challenged the best acoustic guitar players anywhere. No one ever thumb picked with the attack he did during this period - fingerpicking a full loud sound out of his dreadnought Martin guitar.Add to that, this edition comes with three new bonus tracks (tracks 16-18) making it a must buy.If you want a CD full of striking, original, gutsy guitar pieces - this is worth it. The tunes are a fusion of traditional American blues and folk and John Fahey's reinventions of both.Full of short, sharp punchy pieces, it illustrates John Fahey's legacy very well. Only Leo Kottke can touch him in this field of solo, finger-picked, steel strung acoustic guitar blues and folk.

John Fahey was one of my favourite musicians. A self-taught guitarist who used blues and folk music into his playing. He would later incorporate classical, Portuguese, Brazilian, and Indian music into his œuvre. His music was different and unique, he was a genuine musician.

This a brilliant album from John Fahey, YOU MUST BUY!!!

An amazing talent that has managed to stay under the radar for all these years. A masterclass in technique and imagination, takes you to a place that is so unique and yet feels familiar.
