CD Reviews

This fingerstyle guitar music is beautiful & relaxing
08/23/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard Al Petteway at a local folk festival - and I loved his clean playing and lilting melodies. This album is mostly solo guitar; some of the cuts include flute or piano accompianment. The style of the music is Celtic, with a little jazzy flavor. I love this cd - and I also got Mel Bay's tablature of the album so I can play some of the songs myself now - a wonderful way to explore alternate tunings!"
Fingerstyle guitar at its best!

"Al Petteway does a great job using his fingerstyle picking in the album Whispering Stones. The sometimes subtle sounds of the guitar take you to a peaceful place while other pieces in album excite your senses to the Celtic sounds Al picks out. I have several of his albums and they are all great in their own way. Whispering Stones is no exception. If you love Celtic music and it lure and lore, then get this CD today. Al Petteway is a personal artist in that I actually emailed him with some questions and darn if he didn't get right back to me. Now I consider that pretty darn special, considering how busy he is touring and recording. Don't let this one get away."
