Micheal Hedges Youtube – Harp Guitar

I’m surprised how many guitar players there are who have never heard of Michael Hedges, the brilliant innovative guitar player / composer who died in 1997.  Many of the new players such as Andy McKee and all the other acoustic tappers and open tuners were inspired byMichael Hedges.  On this Acoustic Youtube Guitar Video he is playing a harp guitar, as far as I know it is a 1920’s Dyer Harp Guitar, not unlike some of the Larson Brothers instruments.

This tune he is playing a Bach piece called Cello suite in G (Major)

  1. A little mistake here, this tune actually is Because it’s there…
