February 20, 2013

One of my favorite finger style guitarists is Al Petteway who along with his wife Amy White play great Americana music.  Al borrows from everybody when it comes to writing or arranging songs and he's unapologetic about it.  Yet he comes up with some of the tastiest licks around.

I first heard Al on a Cheryl Wheeler cd and went looking on the album credits for who the second guitarist was.  I've been hooked on his music ever since.

Besides session work and writing film and TV scores, Al has a job as guitarist for Dream Guitars where he test drives beautiful custom and vintage instruments and often records with them so the inquiring customer can hear how the guitar sounds when played by a pro.

Keep it Acoustic...
