Thanks, CG ... I appreciate your views, and won't ask that you think otherwise. You're an accomplished classical guitarist, and I respect both your opinions and abilities.
When I began this column, it was to feature guitarists making music using their "flying fingers" on their guitars. Not every weekly feature has had someone tapping on their guitar, but there have also been features with classical, jazz, and flamenco ... the latter style also featuring regular guitar tapping. Not having an accompanying percussionist makes this style very portable, economical (only one paycheck), and also adds an element of creativity and talent. I don't like that some of them do a lot of damage to their instruments (which I don't do) but I do enjoy the creativity.
I hope you can at least enjoy the music itself ... which is the main point. Cheers to you, and thanks for always commenting ... much appreciated, good sir.
