The Montreal Mirror review by Lawrence Joseph


VARIOUS – I Never Meta Guitar (Solo Guitars for the 21st Century) (CFG 005)
What’s happening with the guitar these days? Here are 16 answers from 14 guitarists, one six-string banjo player and an electric viola da gambist. Despite the guitar’s thousand-year history, there’s still abundant room for innovation, evidenced by the diversity of approaches taken here: acoustic, electric, laptop, clean, distorted, delayed and ring-modulated, modern jazz to avant noise. Janet Feder and Nels Cline contribute full-bodied melodic picking, contrasting the frantic rushes from Scott Fields and Mick Barr. Creative fret fun curated by Elliott Sharp, who contributes one frenzied track. 9/10
