: Brother Andrew is an accomplished acoustic guitar
open tuning fingerstyle jammer. This collection of 15 mostly instrumental
tunes is like a breath of sea air on a summer day - with tracks that
are dedicated specifically to parts of the day when they're best enjoyed.
Track 1, "Morning
Star" is one such tune. .with
it's upbeat and happy melodic line, amid the gorgeous sounds of the
open strings BA plays. The multi-track effort has influences of Ackerman
and Hedges and a travis picking style that neither of the two Windham
Hill artists really exploited to the extent that Andrew does here. His
style is melodic with chromatic passing tones within the guitar melodies,
and pedaling bass lines supporting honky-tonk like single lines on the
top strings. Highlights include, "Flying
Guitars", "Sitting On Top of the World", "Caffeine

a certain something about acoustic music that can work well like this
album or it can basically be just a means
to set the boredom in when done badly. Fortunately, as just mentioned,
this album works quite well, almost
entirely instrumental, save one track
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED the flying guitars CD!! Such a beautiful collection of acoustic music!! Thank you oh so much!! Andy Alvarado
received my free copy of Flying Guitars!! I have never been so moved and
touched by simple
acoustic guitar in my life. A beautiful collection of tracks!!!!
Thanks for the cd. I really enjoy your music and your approach. What an excellent job you did on it. The sound is great and the graphics are top notch.
Thanks, Randall Cousins
Dear Andrew, I work at a local country radio station and when I came in after a finishing my day of remotes (I work in the promotions dept.) I was talking to our evening disc jockey about our new guitars. He was playing this wonderful acoustic instrumental as a music bed, and said "you HAVE to check this out!" and loaned me your wonderful CD. I love guitar music, not the real flashy stuff, I generally favor a good melody (my favorite is Steve Howe of Yes). I have to say I loved your music! This is the a great CD! I do not have a credit card and I am interested in purchasing one for myself. Is this sold in stores or can I mail-order? Any response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for a great set of songs! Bill Moore
I LOVE it Andrew!!!!!
Hi Andrew, Thanks for the cd. Superb product !. I didn't know you played as well as that. The music is right up my alley too so I really enjoy listening to it. Don't get too rich and famous and forget all us little guys though. The cd is at my brothers at the moment. He plays the guitar too but hasn't been playing much lately. I'm hoping you will inspire him to keep on making music. All the best, Royce
you so much for sending. It is wonderful
