Product Description

In my humble opinion, Andy is the most innovative and exciting fingerstyle guitarist to emerge in years. Still in his 20's, Andy has developed a mastery of the 6-string guitar and the harp guitar that leaves me speechless. He is the most textural player of the instrument since Michael Hedges, and he creates sonic architecture worthy of the great modern composers for any instrument. - Don Ross

Format: Audio CD
I've been listening to guitar music all my life. I grew up in Seattle, a hot-bead for music...Andy McKee is simply the best musician I have ever seen or heard on the acoustic guitar. I first learned about him on "youtube." There are a dozen or so videos of him playing songs he wrote and/or has covered. I'm glad I saw him play, because I had to see what I was hearing to believe it. I didn't know such sound was possible out of one guitar. It sounds as though he's playing lead, rhythm, bass and percussion all by himself. Amazing skill, topped only by the fact that he has composed each and every piece on this CD.

Not only is his music novel, it's wonderful to listen to on several levels. Songs like "Art of Motion" and "Drifting" are fast-paced and fun...you'll find yourself drumming along on your desk/knee/steering wheel uncontrollably. On the flipside, "Into the Ocean" and "Shanghai" are utterly soothing and will relax you.

I cannot recommend this CD and this musician enough. Ever since I was first exposed to his music, I've been tirelessly browsing the internet looking for new music he has written or songs he has covered ("Africa" is amazing...see "youtube"). If you're a fan of dynamic and excellent guitar music, buy this CD as well as anything else with his name on it.

Little Green Footballs posted his YouTube video of 'For My Father'. If the proponents of Digital Rights Management get their way, I never would have heard this amazing guitarist. I just bought this album.

This musician's compositions and playing waters my soul. Andy, thank you for sharing your gifts.

I have listened to this almost daily since I first saw Andy McKee on Yahoo and decided to purchase. Some absolutely incredible acoustic Guitar. I highly recommend this to anyone, and especially those who may play a little or are learning guitar. See what the instrument can really do.

Andy McKee has arrived on the acoustic guitar scene and he's done it with style. Not only has he shown his influences in his playing with the percussion/harmony/melody style popular of late, but has also brought his own lyrical melody writing into show here, along with fantastic harmonisation and composition.

Along with several other guitarists of the same genre (Antoine Dufour for example), Andy Mckee has set out to push the technical limits of the instrument whilst at the same time making sure to retain the sense of musicality that can sometimes be lost with a little too much concentration on virtuosic skill.

For me, Mckee blends the two aspects of his playing together perfectly and manages to produce music that is technically very difficult whilst still producing a melody you can sing along to. No other song is this shown in more than my favourite of his, 'Drifting'

A brilliant, technically minded album that's guaranteed to be enjoyed over and over again and guaranteed to put McKee firmly on the acoustic map.

As a guitarist who plays mainly metal and the blues, I was floored by Andy McKee's album. I count him among the few guitarists who have left me slack-jawed... including Yngwie, Adam Fulara, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Buzz (from Unearth).

His playing style, amazingly, always keeps me guessing. Just when I think I know how a lick will end up (and I'm happy with it) he does something to make it better. Looking forward to other albums.

I bought this album only to have listened to rylynn and I was interested in listening to more music of this style, and well I can say that this album far exceeded my expectations. Unlike my other CDs which I get tired of and stop listening to for a while, this CD I listen to all the time. The songs are each unique and memorable in their own right. I recently let my friend borrow this CD and well... he didn't return it before going off to college. (Guessing he loved it to much) Anyways I usually never buy an album twice if something happens to the first copy but for this CD I have to have a copy so I'll make an exception.

Very great CD and every song is a treat to your ears, done with precision and feeling from the heart. If you like Don Ross or Antoine Dufour then you will love this album. Worth every penny I paid for it and have since bought 2 more of Andy's CD.

I bought this album several years ago after seeing two of Andy's concerts in Wichita Kansas. I played it many many times over the next couple of years. Recently I started listening to it again.

Andy is fine wine. His musical maturity is still astounding and his originality still surprises me.
His technique really has some virtuosic characteristics - and few finger-pickers can match his subtlety.

It would be nice if we could all concentrate on buying Andy's albums instead of watching youtube for free.

I would like to say something positive about the negative reviews and comments, so here goes: Bach was not as well appreciated during his lifetime as he is now. Wow. I did it.
