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.

    1. I have a couple of friends who live in AA, and they would go to a club down on the main drag (the name escapes me). I went there with them once… Was that where you saw him?

      1. No, I saw him in royal oak actually, about 49 miles north of here. I’m pretty sure you’d be thinking of the ark, on Main Street, I volunteered there one summer and it has an amazing history and mix of entertainment
