Alex De Grassi Youtube – Live in the Hotel Room

You may be familiar with the great Michael Hedges who recorded on the Windham label in the 1980’s.  William Akkerman, co-founder of this label introduced us to some extraordinary musicians apart from Hedges, there was keyboard George Winston, Robbie Basho, Darol Anger and among others, Alex De Grassi.   I feel that too many people who weren’t listening properly were in a hurry to throw some of the material into the New Age category, something that to many musicians often means 45 minutes of Cmaj7 to Fmaj7 with a synth in he background.    Alex De Grassi’s recordings are now legendary and albums such as Turning: Turning Back and Slow Circle set the benchmark for quality in opened tuned guitar playing.

This recording is of Alex De Grassi recorded i a Hotel Room, just the guitar.  Watch how he develops.
