This week I have a sonic treat for you, presented in the form of what I’m listening to.
Modern percussive fingerstyle guitar can sometimes feel one dimensional; that is absolutely not the case with this artist. His ability to pair unique melodies with interesting rhythms is unparalleled.
Antoine Dufour’s songs are permeating through the atmosphere at Acoustic Life Studios this week. Antoine is most certainly in the modern fingerstyle category and he is an outlier in my opinion.
His playing is off the charts. From the innovative melodies to the varied percussive patterns he integrates, Antoine’s repertoire is wide-ranging and extremely dynamic. His knack for creating memorable melodies is his strong suit and he follows that up with rhythmic rollercoasters… the good kind.
All in all, Antoine is someone you need to be aware of as he is very clearly pushing the boundaries of what a single acoustic guitar can do.
