It’s funny how spending a day with a friend can change your perspective. Such was a day yesterday in a road trip to Taylor guitars. Nothing like being confined in a little box to force you to get to know someone you already want to know. Femke and I visited the factory where our acoustic guitars are made. Lots o fun!
We stopped off in San Diego’s gaslamp district to grab a late lunch before heading home. The trip back became one of those chat sessions where you open up and talk in depth about things going on in your life and what’s on your mind. Funny how that happens mostly after you’ve been in the car for hours.
Which leads me to this instrumental ditty by Steve Moorse. What I like about Steve is his blazing chops to play guitar. In addition to those chops he has a musicality and groove that many chops style players don’t have. The cool thing about this song is that I actually get the sense that I’ve been on the road for a while and that I am headed home. That’s the power of instrumental music. Don’t ya think?
If you don’t have any of the Steve’s stuff, I high recommend exploring his CDs, they are a plethora of great playing and music. Not to mention he’s a really cool guy to boot.
