Michael Hedges was an artist that defied all the norms of the acoustic guitar and exposed what it truly was capable of. Hedges created masterful melodies that forged a new path for the acoustic guitar. Not only did he play with grace and elegance, he also sang as well as played other instruments on his albums. He was signed to the Windham Hill label in the year 1981 and proceeded to leave a fantastically huge musical legacy behind  . All in all, Michael Hedges needs to be on your guitar geek radar due to his influence on current players, and the incredible catalog of acoustic guitar centered music he created.

Michael Hedges is generally regarded as one of the most talented acoustic guitar players ever. He was a brilliant and creative composer, and basically created a genre of music using many unconventional techniques that today are not so unconventional. Taproot is one of his better albums. I also like Arial Boundaries, and I just bought Oracle. I avoid the albums where he sings extensively. If you are a fan of virtuoso acoustic guitar work, and Michael Hedges specifically, this is an essential addition to your library. This album blends into a middle of the road mysticism that hasn't aged well. If you have not listened to Michael Hedges, audition some other works before you pull the trigger on this one. I'm sure that if he were alive today, he would be at the leading edge just as he was when this was produced.
