This piece is really special to me. Andy McKee is one of the finest and most innovative guitar players composing today, and probably will be viewed highly in the guitar pantheon after most of us have turned to dust. He does everything very well, and writes very technical and difficult pieces of music that are also incredibly beautiful.
Andy McKee is absolutely worth tons of listens if you don’t know his playing. Rylynn is one of my favorites. I don’t know that my playing does it justice, but I definitely tried very hard to make it sound pleasant. By anyone’s standards this is really HARD to play, and utilizes a crazy tuning, a capo made for a banjo, slap harmonics, and approximately 9,467 notes weaved into a catchy and soulful melody.
I also want to thank all of my friends in social media who help spread the word about my playing, and teaching. The Guitarborist page has seen really incredible growth lately, and that has everything to do with YOU friends passing videos along. It’s really neat getting comments from people I’ve never met on the other side of the world who have generous things to say about the music being made, and it helps my studio have a stronger, and more legitimate presence in the world.
Thank you all very much, and I hope this is enjoyed!
