"The most exciting playlist on Spotify" reloaded again for a great Monday morning! "This Week in Fingerstyle" curated by Daryl Shawn! Put your headphones on or AirPods in and disappear into these wonderful sounds!
First up is "Bluesette" by Nicholas Russell! A wonderful bluesy/jazzy piece that just makes you feel good for that first cup of coffee on Monday morning or any other afternoon or late night. Wonderful piece!

"Hope" by Cim Frode, who is one of my new favorite artists! What a guitarist! Cim's work spans both the Celtic world and his tremendous original pieces like "Hope". With a refined and somewhat lighter touch on both the strings and the percussive techniques, this piece carries you away! Well done Cim!

"Embers" by the eclectic talent of Mathew Joseph is another in the long line of tremendous "w…

First up is "Skye Boat Song (Theme From Outlander)" by the incomparable Stephen Wake! This wonderful rendition by Stephen is slowed down just a bit with beautiful phrasing and an airy feel. One of the best versions I've ever heard!

"Rummy Queen" by Lance Allen is a personal story tribute to his grandmother. Sweet, tender and perfectly recorded! Lance always delivers first-rate music and this is another of his finest!

"Siyah" by Murat Keyder has a middle eastern feel and flair to it that simply shines! 

"The Space Between" by August Flendahl is another in August's fine work in nylon string guitar. A…

First up is "Maelstrom" by the incredible Calum Graham! Just first class from  beginning  to end. 
"Falso 9" by Nacho Eguia is a beautiful nylon string piece with Tango & Folklore influences. Cool!
"0800 Hours" by Peter Lainson is a fantastic folk guitar piece and has a wonderful poignant story behind it that I'd love for Peter to tell us all about! Really nice guitar work Peter!
"Longer", the Dan Fogelberg cover by Glenn Roth is authentic Glenn! Glenn always manages to bring something new to the table with each cover that he creates! This one is a touching, lovely version of this classic! Great jo…

First up is "Memoria Andaluza" by Agustin Amigo & Tommy Berre! Two of my favorite guitarists/composers who each seem to have a never-ending well of inspiration. This is another! What a treat to have them both together!
"Silver Lining" by Andy Salvanos & Matt Tondut is part of the Valley View Records stellar recent Compilation Album "Dream Chasers, Vol. 1". One of the great tracks on this album and now released as a single. Andy & Matt combine to give us something truly wonderful! Well done!
"An Awakened Dream" by Ken Verheeke is pure Ken! Lovely, poignant and all said in beautiful "guitare…
