    Well, just a few hours ago - cigar box guitar music. Didn't even know that was a thing. 3 or 4 strings, body is an - you guessed it - old-timey wooden cigar box. I stumbled upon the Pennsylvania Cigar Box Music Festival, an annual affair. The band we watched were pretty good, mostly old blues songs. TILT

    Justin Johnson is one of the most famous that I've seen. He plays shovels, oil cans and other odd objects as guitars as well.

    I still think even to this day this was their best pop era album. One of my personal favorite 80s album, a little bit for everyone here.

    Nice. All 3 seem to have excellent technique, but that Casper Esmann is the one I'll be seriously looking into, as his original song actually sounds coherent, like he's clear on what the song is trying to be, and is not just aimlessly exploring melodic possibilities like the other two.

    Last time I spent money on fingerstyle guitar music I went for a few of Alex Anderson's pieces (he's riding that coherence threshold between "I know what you're saying" and "You lost me" - most of his stuff I can't listen to, but e.g. "Under a Starless Sky" is among the good ones):


    ... and of course Andy McKee (I'd post "Rylynn" but that would be too obvious, so let's say "Ebon Coast" is another great example of what he's capable of as a composer):

    None of these are music that I would just listen to for enjoyment but I agree on the comments. Especially the last guy seems to just be stringing together flashy techniques. I just can't get into these types of guitarists. One of my fave solo acoustic guitar guys is Leo Kottke. He has some great songs as well as technique and a wry sense of humor.



    He does a great cover of Little Martha. Love the harmonics:

    I've listened to some Alice In Chains albums in their entirety today.

    Sap
    Jar Of Flies
    Dirt

    Why, you may ask? Because I'm putting "star" ratings in JRiver Media Center today. LOL...

    Facelift is my personal fave Alice CD.

    Sadly for Layne Staley this title was too prescient.

    Didn’t expect to hear vocaloid in a Big Boi song, but it’s pretty good.
