artworkThe Space Plan have a mighty nice instrumental sound. One side is like finger pick surf, while the other is more trad. Both sides play well.

Track by Track Review


Tread Lightly dotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This very pretty intro is from a self titled single (1998). The chord based picking is somewhat reminiscent of Paul Johnson's penchant for interplay and maybe folk style finger picking. It's melodic and surprisingly infectious. Dry guitar, and mid tempo rhythm. While it's low key, I found it strangely attractive and memorable. A nice track.

West Prairie Range dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a beautiful ringing chord track with a splendid semi cowboy feel. Rich and memorable, "West Prairie Range" rides the cactus trail on a late afternoon looking for a good place to bed down for the night.
