Rob Kaspar, Solo Guitar, Recordings of Live Performances.
My one and only music lesson was years ago when I was living near Santa Barbara. My girlfriend, an otherwise timid type, snuk up behind me and broke a guitar over my head. (actually it glanced off my head and hit my shoulder). I remember the vague sense that something was accelerating towards my skull from behind and I can still hear that sound – a tight but resonant base with just the right amount of wood splinters in the (my) upper registers. I don’t know what it was that I did … (but I’m certain I deserved it.)
And yes, I know the vocals sound much better if you lower your standards. I use them mostly for crowd control or when I’m feeling petulant.
