Song of the Day: Michael Hedges, “Aerial Boundaries”

I subscribed to Guitar Player magazine for several years, and in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s I started reading a lot about Michael Hedges and his unique approach to guitar. As is usually the case, however, every time I was in a record store (which by then were selling few records but plenty of cassettes and CD’s) his name totally slipped my mind. After his tragic death in a car accident in 1997 (and the obligatory tributes in all the guitar magazines), he dropped off my radar and wasn’t found again until the magic of YouTube came along and I had nothing but hours to sit by the computer and watch videos. He was everything they said, and more. This is the title track from his second album, 1987’s Aerial Boundaries.
