Keith Calmes - Still Life And Simple Dreamsdotdotdot
artworkThis 23 track CD is a very pleasant acoustic guitar release with a number of very easy on the ears songs. I'm reviewing is here because Keith Calmes included two venerable rock instro classics often covered by surfbands, "Sleep Walk" and "Hawaii Five-0."
Picks: Sleep Walk, Hawaii Five-0

Sleepwalk dotdotdot
Solo Guitar (Instrumental)

This is a very delicate solo acoustic guitar rendering of Santo and Johnny's "Sleepwalk." Rhythm and melody are played together in a superb balance, and the liquid playing adds the requisite flow. Very nice.

Hawaii Five-0 dotdotdotdot
Solo Guitar (Instrumental)

You wouldn't think that acoustic guitar would rock, but here ya go. Mort Shuman's TV theme is really cool this way. Surprise your friends!
