Acoustic Guitar – Antoine Dufour Youtube

Antoine Dufour is one of the new breed of Acoustic Guitar players who play percussively by using techniques such as hammer ons, Guitar Harmonics and open tunings to take his music outside the traditional way of playing.  The difference between Antoine and many of the other players who are attempting this style is on his recordings he focuses on music  and not just flamboyancy.  Michael Hedges, the great (late) American guitar player was one of the founding players in this style on his recordings in the 1980’s.  And these days there are is also Andy McKee and Don Ross who pla in a similar vain.

This tune is called Spiritual Groove.

  1. Discovered him maybe 2 years ago. Still completely breathless when I hear him play… Thanx for sharing !

  2. Great stuff, there is a video somewhere on Youtube where he talks about his guitar, technique, and why he uses that sash on the headstock. Awesome player, with great tone.

  3. I’m so intrigued by this style of playing, I assume it must take quite a bit of finger strength and agility to pull that stuff off.
