Item description for Acoustic Sketches by Phil Keaggy...

One of contemporary Christian music's founding fathers, Phil Keaggy (remember Glass Harp, '60s music fans?) is also one of its finest musicians. Acoustic Sketches, which won the 1999 Dove Award for best instrumental album, is a testament to Keaggy's long-admired guitar playing. The 19 tracks here allow him to build flowery and intricate variations upon a theme; at times Keaggy's recording nearly shimmers with a magical sound. "Del's Bells" and the end tune, "Legacy," draw admitted comparisons to virtuoso Michael Hedges, while "Nellie's Tune," "Spanish Fantasy," and the moody "On Some Distant Shore" strongly evoke European images. Keaggy fans will also be pleased as he occasionally samples his voluminous body of recorded work, quoting riffs from past sessions. Guitar players of any genre will appreciate the deft skill displayed on Acoustic Sketches. --Michael Lyttle

Reviews - What do customers think about Acoustic Sketches?

Supreme Acoustic Intelligence  Jun 30, 2006
A box bursting with exquisite riff-candies infused to the max with Segovian proficiency, enharmonics, harmonics and unmatched style. All guitarists should own this. If you pride yourself on acoustical guitar playing and haven't heard these pieces, consider yourself robbed. Mr. Keaggy is one of the, if not the, best acoustical guitarists in the world.
Play 'em and Sleep . . .  May 23, 2006
Load this CD along with Beyond Nature, In The Quiet Hours, and Lights of Madrid on your iPod playlist, and enjoy a very relaxing sleep. Great music to sleep, study, or relax by. As I've said before, you can't go wrong with these or any of Phil's work.
Wonderful Collection of Guitar Instrumentals  Oct 9, 2005
In his comments on each tune, Phil Keaggy begins by referring to these pieces as "loose sketches," and for the most part that's what they are; not necessarily fully realized songs, but simply sketches. But these are wonderful sketches, to be sure. Listen to the classical influences of "Rivulets," Michael Hedges tapping style on "Del's Bells," the Chet Atkins-inspired picking on "Paka," the bluesy funk of "Jam in the Pocket," and the haunting "Legacy."

On most of the tracks, it's simply Keaggy and his guitar (or accasionally accompanying himself), but on the spiritual "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" he is joined by a second guitarist on slide guitar and a tuba(!) player to marvelous effect.

All told, this is a very enjoyable album, and perhaps my favorite Phil Keaggy CD. [Running Time - 63:20] HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
The Ever Versatile Keaggy  Jul 14, 2005
Amazing as always, Phil Keaggy has managed to successfully excel in many forms of music; beautiful, bluesy, jazzy, and a little bluegrass thrown into the mix. This is a great cd to listen to any time of day - anyplace.
I'm practically speechless!!  Feb 16, 2004
I listened to the last song again and again, completely in awe of this man's talent. I listen and am shocked that I am only listening to one guitar with two hands playing it.

In addition to his fantastic talent, he uses this strange technique of hitting the guitar strings, making use of enharmonics, which always thrills me to pieces as a listener.
