Like the twanging calls of blue jays swooping from the oaks down the street, or the resonant drumming of a woodpecker in a hollow snag near the river, the sounds of certain guitar players inhabit my mind with a comforting persistence and familiarity, and impart an aural and musical continuity to the years. In the following written pieces I take a stab at acknowledging and commemorating some of those players. It's far from a complete picture, this acknowledgment, and I don't think it's a job I could finish, but it was an easy decision to begin with a tribute to John Fahey. I hope you find that these pages are a good read.
