One of my favorite pieces over the years by #willackerman is called Unconditional. I remember it as a kid and playing it over and over. Will has always played it as a solo piece on a guitar that the great #michaelhedges gifted to him before he left us all in 1997. There is a lot of history in that guitar, in Will and in my lifelong love of both Michael and Will's music. As we started performing more together we decided to try a duet together. I joyfully wrote a harmony part to this special piece and here we are recording it together with @universal_noises at #imaginaryroadstudios. Whatever winding paths happen in life I am grateful for this one coming full circle. My adoration of this piece has grown even more now having recorded it but still nothing compared to playing it live together. The awe of it still hasn't faded and I hope it never does. Thank you Will for this! You can hear this song on our new album just released called Four Guitars with Will Ackerman, @vindownes , @toddmosbymusic and meeshelf.

Irrational yet true dilemma: whilst doing sound check, one must not just test that the reverb sounds good. One must turn level up to 11 to see how far overboard one can actually go before the hall screams back. Then after taking mental note, one must use sound judgment to determine whether to leave settings for actual performance at maximum (preferred) assuming risk of possible wailing frequencies causing permanent hearing loss to all parties present BUT armed with the knowledge that the fullest cosmic proportion level of the delightful swirling reverb is fully realized ...OR... dial back the reverb level ever so slightly to be safe but then have to accept realization that mid performance, when the reverb is activated, one will be reminded that the true potential size of the sound is left unrealized. True Story.

Had an awesome time with my buds @therealmckee and @danny_choi playing gigs in DC, Pittsburgh and Philly! Always lots of laughs, music, and calories. We have a nice duet of Andy's tune For My Father that I cannot wait to share. More gigs coming up with Andy's Guitar Masters tour and Musicarium!
Greece 🇬🇷 is a country full of beautiful people and history. This is the Rotunda of Galerius in Thessaloníki constructed around 306 AD. It was originally built as a temple, possibly dedicated to Zeus, then converted into a church many decades later, then 1200 years later a into mosque, then over 700 years later back to a church and nowadays it towers high as a historic monument and cultural icon of the city. Nearly 100 feet tall, with walls over 20 feet thick, this structure is astounding....SO.....of course I had to test the REVERB!!! Ahhhh!! The sustain!!!! 🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻 Special thanks to my dear friend @peterjaygood for suggesting I do this and recording this clip while in Greece on a tour with @evaatmatzidou in December 2018.
