সূর্যের ফালিতে মিশে থাকা ধুলোর মতো একেক তারের সুর, আমার গোধূলি পর্যন্ত
গিয়ে মিশে আনন্দ-আক্ষেপের বার্তা নিয়ে………

Sounds like diablo 2 music.

At this point there are 177 people that are jealous of Dawes. Great piece !
I like it. :-)

Daniel van Niekerk says:

“Using one’s guitar to the best of one’s ability” is an understatement.
And, I assume this is done on a standard tuning (or drop D), just with a 5
string capo on fret 4. If so, doing this *without* a alternate tuning is
something to really look up to. Although this performance might not be as
long as John Butler’s “Ocean” – where you start getting bored at the 8th
minute – it is still some of the best guitar skills that I’ve seen in a
*long* time. And these that say that he’s got no timing and/or no melody
writing/improvisation abilities, go check “Mike Dawes – Boogie Slam” from
the 3:06th minute. And, while you’re at it, stop placing comments like our
old friend Mike Kenneth Devine.

I wish I could apply myself to anything like he applied himself to being a
guitarist

I really love this styling of finger picking incorporating percussion.
Awesome song! Huge thumbs up

Raymond Peck says:

I’ve listened to a bunch of the Candyrat stuff, but Mike Dawes is the first
one that really captures some of the spirit, rather than just the
technique, of the great Michael Hedges. Wonderful stuff. Thank you!

Tilbily says:

Really enjoyed this. I’ll never be able to play like this, but it is fun to
watch guitarist like Dawes and Peppino D’agostino work their majic.

I feel bad because probably 90% of the dislikes didnt stay past that
beginning, I myself at first was like WTF but I’m happy I kept listening..
Good Shit dude. Two Thumbs Up!

IKHLS channel says:

This style of playing has roots in the work of m. Hedges. As yet there is
no name 4 it. Would I b wrong in calling this MILLENIAL GUITAR?
We have most elements of music at the fingertip of 1 player: R.M.H.


Mike Danley says:

I’m wondering if he was influenced by Phil Keaggy?

Sam Man says:

Love the eastern European sound.

Aberinkulas says:

harrison ayres says:

it was amazing when Mike Dawes did a master class at my music college, he
is even better in person then on video 

DeadtiredFastasleep says:

The melody reminds me of a song by Gordian Knot.
