Mellow Mongrain

Today marks yet another installment of Jon's Musical Menagerie. Or whatever the hell we're calling it now. Today's featured artist is a French Canadian by the name of Erik Mongrain. You'll find his music to be unique and interesting for a number of reasons, chiefly among them:
  • His works are purely instrumental
  • He plays only the acoustic guitar... but uses an interesting technique called "guitar-tapping" to make some pretty cool sounds.
To put it simply, his music is good mellow music: Stuff you might want to listen to when you're feeling thoughtful, or good background music for when you're working or have company over. I'd definitely give it a listen - it's a valuable addition to a good library. The album is called "Fates".
