This is from my album "Acoustica"
When I was about seventeen, I would visit a local music store a few times a week. This was Don's Music. It was owned and ran by, well of course... Don. A swell guy who was a fairly masterful guitarist, banjo and fiddle player. One day after hearing Don play a bluegrass run on a Strat copy I wondered what would it be like to play bluegrass in a heavy metal/rock fashion (that's not this album, that one is actually being produced now and by the time you read this out already), then I thought, why not the reverse? Why not play rock and metal songs with bluegrass/acoustic instruments? (that IS this album). From Yngwie Malmsteen's "Blackstar" to the Who's "Quadrophenia", I tried to be true to both the original work as well as the instruments the were played on. I truly hope that it honours both. Hope you dig it. :)
