    Whacka-whacka guitar? Heaven forbid someone should do something outside the box. Hedges was not a mainstream performer, which means he was an actual musician and artist. There are precious few videos of him, but quite a few bootleg concert recordings out there. He could be a bit eccentric, true. One of my all time favorites, a terrible loss.

    My guess he was referring to the percussiveness of Hedges' playing style, not any kind of reference to his eccentricities. I could be wrong, though.

    Indeed:

    His affiliation with Windham Hill prompted many to label him a new age musician, but he bristled at such categorizations and instead offered "violent acoustic," "heavy mental," "new edge," and "deep-tissue gladiator guitar."

    I am very familiar with Mr. Hedges characterizations of his music. I just don't care for the term "whacka whacka". As he said at one bootleg concert recording I have, "... this next tune leaves the realm of violent acoustic guitar music", and he did that all the time. He also said that some of his "tunings" were based on the work of classical composers.

    I'm sorry, but I'm such a huge fan of Hedges that I take offense easily when I perceive any critique of him. Of far more importance is the inclusion of a work in his discography I did not know existed! Who released Strings of Steel, it was not Windham Hill. I've gotta follow that up!!

    Some Texas Hillbillies called Go Fast doing one Hell of a job on "Mississippi Queen."

    Just watching the drummer's infectious enthusiasm was worth it! And the rest too.

    Hey Bo...

    Nice mix going on there. Thanks for the compliments....sorry I scared you...didn't mean to

    But in all fairness to the sound guy for our video...he is very good. My wife shot that little video with my Canon Powershot A430. She was standing behind and next to the mains, so out of mix range really.

    My amp...a Rivera Knucklehead 55 was stolen from my shop the following week. It's back to my Marshall 50 watt combo for the time being...which served me well for 20 years. Maybe the Marshall arranged to have the Rivera whacked....they slept together in the same room for several years. Amp jealousy?

    The monitors are JBL SRx712M. They belong to www.TrinitySoundCompany.com

    I know them well. Got five of those beauties that have been with me for over three-years. Compact, and very flat response right outa the box - really helps with GBF, for sure. No-one gripes about those...
