there has to be one that is out there that changed things for you and really moved you.


Luminaria by Ian Moore probably moved me more than any other record ive ever heard. it was so different than anything id ever heard. though it came out in 2003 and cannot be considered classic, it hit me like a ton of bricks. alt.county meets jazz meets roots meets folk meets who knows what. he's got to be one most gifted singers alive as well.

In reality, probably Grateful Dead's Aoxomoxoa. I bought it when it first came out (I was about 14). I bought it because of the intruiging artwork. Didn't know anything about the Dead, at the time. It lead me into being a Deadhead for a while. But it moved me to explore all kinds of new unknown music. Something I continue to enjoy doing to this day.

The first John Prine album. I first heard it in the early '70's; I was 18. That's the album that made me go out and buy my first guitar. That's the album that, probably more than any other, shaped my musical preferences over the next thirty years. That album was a major influence in my own repertoire (I still love to play a number of songs off that album).  For those who know this album, you'll agree that the musiicianship is uncomplicated, and the singing is, well, John Prine. Yet there is a (CLICHE ALERT!!) timeless, ancient quality to the songwriting, and it stands up quite well today.

Most importantly, the album taught me that you didn't have to play like Clapton or sing like McCartney to make worthwhile music.

EXACTLY what Stubby said!!!!!  Word for word!!!!  John Prine's first album was the single most influential album/artist that shaped my guitar playing years that followed.  To this day, my play list will always include one or two of John Prine's classics.  I think of him as the everyday kinda guy with technique that is easy and enjoyable for the average player like myself.

Acoustic: Hot Tuna - "Hot Tuna".  Their first album.  Blew me away. Still some of the best acoustic blues I've ever heard.  It's like Jorma chanelled the spirits of the Rev. and Mance Lispscome, tightend up the arragements a bit, and blasted them out his fingertips.

Mississippi John Hurt---The best of Mississippi john Hurt...this album still moves me everytime I hear it...the emotion and feeling that MJH puts into his guitar playing and singing on everyone of these songs is just fantastic...I have always been moved more by live music...even recordings of live music...than overly produced albums...and this is certainly true with MJH...something special comes through on this album that I just haven't heard on his other discs....

Yikes, I might sound like a rebel here but mine would prolly be:

Alice In Chains MTV Unplugged (DVD or the CD)   

Seeing a Seattle grunge band going out all acoustic just really inspired me to practice more and inspired me musically to play more.  I worked on that album for a long time when I first started playing.  You wouldn't think a band like them would sound any good unplugged, but once you get a listen to a song without all the distortion you really start to hear the great writing and composing that was done.

Over the years many artists have inspired me and pushed me to redfine my musical tastes. However, over the last 3 years, as I have, almost exclusively, explored the world of the acoustic guitar, I would have to say that the one work that stands out in my mind for its pure artistry and exploration of the instrument is
Intuite -  Pierre Bensusan

I have been forutnate to see Pierre perform live and was impressed with his dedication to the art and also the way in which he explores a specific tuning (DADGAD) in ways that one would not normally associate with it. A true artist par excellence!

"No Dirty Names" by Dave van Ronk and...
"Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" by Neil Young and Crazy Horse.

van Ronk bowled me over with his playing and the breadth of his source material.
"Everybody Knows..." had so much power with such simplicity.

Listened to them over and over and both are still among my favorites. I do wish I could find "No Dirty Names" on CD, but as far as I can tell, it has not been reissued in that format.
