Guitarist Paul Geller's debut CD, "A Walk Down Familiar Paths" released in May of 2005 features 9 original songs all played on acoustic guitar, parlor guitar, slide guitar, dobro and mandolin. Unplugged and without bass and drums these songs feature a wide variety of open tunings and organic melodies
I am still playing lots of electric guitar of course but my love for the acoustic guitar sounds took over and I started writing songs and exploring various open tunings and the final result was" A Walk Down Familiar Paths". I was fortunate to work with Guitarist Neal Harris to record, mix and master the cd. He is an amazing musician, great friend and has a great pair of ears! Neal has worked with many great artists and engineered the grammy nominated "The Water Garden" by Alex DeGrassi. I was Inspired by the great acoustic players Jerry Douglas, Leo Kottke, Ledward Kaapana, Keola Beamer and Alex De Grassi when making this cd. The music is written about special people and beautiful places that are very important to me. Often I found myself hiking the paths near my home with my dog Janna and feeling really inspired to write songs that remind me of the people and places that I enjoy so much, some near and some far off in the Pacific Ocean. The title " A Walk Down Familiar Paths " is my tribute to Janna who became sick during the recording of the cd but was around during all the long nights hanging on the couch composing these songs. When you give this cd a listen - I hope it takes you on "A Walk Down Familiar Paths" to those places that touch your soul...

The man can play!
Mr. Geller can bring you to places nobody can.
The ride down the track "Highway 1" is a testament to his musical ability to take the listener to different locale.
"Leona" is a heartfelt acoustic ballad with no equal in its precise presentation. The "Indian Valley" is another song which will evoke a sense of time not passing, so much as time being relative to ones own relaxation and reflections.
The remaining tracks are all as satisfying as the ones above. " A Walk Down Familiar Paths" is as pleasing as a California sunset with a good bottle of wine and a woman who is easy. Buy it!

Outstanding CD!
This is an outstanding CD. Great variety of songs, both relaxing and upbeat. Everyone who hears it playing in our home wants to know who the artist is. Paul Geller must be developing quite a following from this debut. I look forward to his next work.

This is a really special CD! Paul incorporates so many different acoustic styles that compliment one another yet never allow one to be bored listening. His music does not force a feeling but rather allows and suggests your own walk down familiar paths :).

Inspiring instrumental to relax your soul....
There are touches of many players and styles on the mellow instrumental. If acoustic Jimmy Page moved to Hawaii and took up lap steel this is part of what you will hear. This is a VERY enjoyable collection of songs. I highly recommend it!

A giant step forward for Paul's path toward musical excellence.
Paul's first album is a GEM! Through his musical talents and inspiration, the album is a giant step on Paul's path toward musical success. His mastery of the instruments is replicated in each cut. Paul's exceptional musical talent is revealed over and over. I would recommend this album to anyone who loves the guitar

One of the best acoustic solo albums I've heard in a long time! I just checked out this album and have not stopped listening to it since. The album really sets a great acoustic mood with sensitive and harmonically invigorating compositions throughout. The alternate open tunings, harmonics, and intruiging voice-leading really demonstrates a clear sense of style and advanced musicianship found on this album. I would definately recommend it as one of the best solo acoustic guitar CDs in my collection.
