Michael Hedges - Aerial Boundaries

I got up this morning with my friend Chris DeVine bouncing around in my head. Chris introduced me to the amazing guitar playing of Michael Hedges when we were in high school. I still thrill at Hedges playing style. There is no one quite like him. There is a kind of peace and beauty that pervades many of his songs. Unfortunately, Hedges died in a tragic car accident a decade or so back, so all we are left with is his CDs and videos. "Aerial Boundaries" is one of his more well-known tracks and this video, despite the funny setting, gives you a nice view of his hands as he plays.

It is also excellent "Monday morning music."
