Just checked him out on YouTube. Everyone should watch "Signals" video. Mesmerizing guitar.

WOW!! I guess I better run out and buy a Pass / Wilson setup so I can hear that one note more better. This is not music! And he had the nerve to say "it was recorded in ONE TAKE" No kidding!! Like he could have made a 'mistake' !! Just so happens that Philip Glass was interviewed on the BBC last night. Those Brits are tough interviewers.
That is very pleasant to listen to. Thanks for sharing. Personally when I feel like listening to this type of sound, which I do once in a while but it isn't very often. then I listen to it for 15-20 minutes, then after that it just starts to sound less like music and more like noise to me. It sound like something a bunch of monks might go crazy with.
Thank you Frogman, Tpreaves, Ratheprinter, Rxman, Marqmike, Donjr, and Mateored for your civil and constructive comments.
For me, having thousands of recordings, it is nice to find something different even if it is something that I may listen to only in a certain mood (in this case a contemplative one). For example, I purchased something called minimalist music to see what it was about, in the form of Arvo Part, Alina. It uses the spaces between notes in a very extended way and really can move you when your are in the mood for it, even if most of the time it would be quite irritating after a few minutes.
Thanks Gammajo. I do the same thing with some pieces of music I have that I am not as fond of, I revisit it from time to time. What helps me many times to understand to appreciate the music, if it is coming from a real creative artist and I don't like it as well, is to learn a little more about it especially in the way of seeing it in person in a good venue. So thanks again for sharing.
