Monday Music: Aerial Boundaries


When my wife and I had been dating for about three months, I bought her the 1984 Windham Hill Sampler. To this day, it is one of my favorite recordings. I am sure one of the reasons for my fondness toward it is that we listened to it during those early days of courtship, but it is also full of great music. One of my favorite tracks on that album is “Aerial Boundaries,” by the late Michael Hedges. Hedges was a true genius at his craft. His first two albums, Breakfast in the Fields, and Aerial Boundaries were ground-breaking events in acoustic guitar music. Hedges used various alternate tunings for his songs, and a number of techniques including slap harmonics to achieve his unique style.

Here is Michael Hedges' Aerial Boundaries:
