Acoustic guitar soli. With 50 years of guitar-playing experience under his belt, Glenn Jones continues to deepen his explorations into the American primitive style developed by John Fahey & co. Firmly in the traditions of American folk and blues guitar, with occasional significant deviations. Favorites: 2, 3, 4, 7. No words, no FCCs.

1. (4:42)—Medium-slow, wistful, bouncy.
2. *(3:21)—Gentle, slow. Insect sounds. Back porch evening music.
3. *(7:17)—Shimmering 12-string playing. Raga-like beginning, a middle like a restrained rave-up. Dark undertones.
4. *(2:08)—Melody like a old jazz vocal hook. Bright and clear. More night sounds.
5. (2:56)—Rich fingerpicked melodies. Slightly bluesy lilts. Ending sleigh bells.
6. (1:59)—Airplane and bird sounds, drones. Slide guitar, scraping of strings.
7. *(4:26)—C# minor brooding. Starts slow, becomes an assertive blues jaunt with some rich melodic asides.
8. (5:26)—Upbeat, head-bobbing, with some subtle tonal shifts.
9. (3:46)—Pleasant, bluesy.
10. (2:05)—Heavier reverb, medium-fast, great for fans of Leo Kottke.
