Album Notes
This album represents 35 years of almost daily guitar practice and even more years of loving music. Several of the pieces use "clawhammer" technique and "high five tuning," where I replace the low fifth string with a high first string to create a soothing drone that floats over the melody. Multiple genres are represented here, primarily Appalachian, Hawaiian, French and Celtic. There is an equal balance of slow and upbeat pieces on this album. I also play banjo on two tunes and sing on two tunes. But it is mainly a solo guitar album. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for checking in.

Yannick, France.

Magic music from a spellbinding bard.
Like Steve's previous albums, this one is a delight to the ears. I really enjoy listening to these tunes and songs: traditional pieces, arrangements and compositions. Lovely melodies played on banjo and guitar, the clawhammer technique is often employed even on the guitar tuned in High Five, Orkney or DADGAD. This CD is also a good opportunity to discover two hybrid instruments: the Baugholin and the Dulcitar. Finally, Steve is a generous joker, don't "blow the candle out" after track 15... Thanks to CD Baby.
