Every so often an artist comes along, changes the way an instrument is perceived, and then continues to push its boundaries. The artist that I have been listening to this week does just this and does so tirelessly…
She is seemingly always trying something new and constantly challenging herself to find new avenues for the six string guitar.
The artist that I am referring to is Kaki King; fingerstyle guitar player extraordinaire, a brilliant composer, and constant boundary pusher. Kaki creates a beautiful synergy between percussive elements on the guitar and gorgeous melodies carried out with two hand tapping and other unconventional styles.
She has a myriad of albums to explore and I strongly encourage you to check them out. Your mind will be blown wide open at the possibilities of the 6 string acoustic guitar.
