CD Reviews

+ 1/2 stars...Excellent Companion to BEYOND SIX STRINGS
Steve Vrana | Aurora, NE | 01/25/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The thirteen tracks from thirteen different artists--including producer Gregg Miner--makes an excellent companion disc to the equally wonderful BEYOND SIX STRINGS, released in 2006. These two albums provide a more than adequate introduction to the world of the harp guitar.

Seven of these artists were also featured on BEYOND SIX STRINGS. Among the new artists to this collection is acclaimed fingerstyle guitarist Alex de Grassi who performs "Reverie for Greensleeves" using a 2006 Fred Carlson "New Dream" 39-string Harp-Sympitar. The oldest instrument is used by Miner, a one-of-a-kind 1912 Knutsen "Zither Harp Guitar." [Note: Knutsen patented his first harp guitar in 1896. Only 160 Knutsen guitars are known to have been built, and of those only 123 survive to this day.] Tim Donahue plays an electric harp guitar--the only one used on this collection. The booklet includes a photo of each artist and his/her instrument along with information on each track.

Each of these tracks is a meditative delight. Highlights include Muriel Anderson's "View from Space." (Her nylon-stringed instrument adds an especially ethereal quality.) Equally lovely is Tom Shinness's "Dulcitar Dream." And if you're wondering: Does a harp guitar REALLY sound sound like a harp? Listen to Miner's "Bridge of Verdant Mist" or John Doan's "Harp Guitar Dreams" and find out for yourself.

This is music for the soul. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED [Running Time - 50:12]"
