I have an old friend in Houston that plays in this style. This is Jon Gomm, a REAL guitarist. The first time I ever saw anyone play in a style close to this, it was when Kaki King played at the TED talks. Here are videos of both of them, and both are well worth a look-see. I adore this kind of playing. It is innovative, and not just the same ‘ol..same ‘ol, overworked, overused crap that 50 million other guitarists are playing.
I love a musician that thinks outside the box and carves new paths into the music world. These two do that. Jack White is another. Chris Whitley was another.
I’m really digging this new wave of talent. It is fresh, interesting, intelligent sounding. Pure.
