Michael Hedges – The Great Acoustic Innovator

Many people are not aware of the great guitar player that influenced so many guitar players, Michael Hedges died in a car accident in 1993, he was 43 years old. He played open tuning guitar, what this means to the uninitiate is that the guitar was tuned differently. This guy is unbelievable. Be patient with this, he does his intro tune up and then. Personall I think he reinvented the acoustic guitar. He’s quite young in this video.

Enjoy the Michael Hedges youtube video

  4. Thanks for sharing this rare video of Michael Hedges. It’s funny but I never thought to search for him on Youtube. I guess I didn’t expect there to be much video footage of him. Great stuff! He truly changed the course of modern, acoustic, fingerstyle guitar forever.
