Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • FINGERS AND THUMBS is an Enhanced audio CD which contains regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.
  • Personnel includes: Adrian Legg, Eric Johnson (guitar); Roscoe Beck, Tom Brechtline.
  • Recorded at Saucer Sound, Austin, Texas.
  • Photographer: Adrian Legg.
  • Adrian Legg is one of those guitarists whom other guitarists love to hate -- it would be easier if he were a mere virtuoso, spinning out a thousand meaningless notes per second and allowing less skilled players to comfort themselves with the thought that they, at least, have taste. The problem is that he has both chops and taste in such jaw-dropping quantity that other players are left dumbfounded and stricken. Those whose egos are unattached to the guitar are free, of course, to simply sit back and enjoy Legg's sweet-spirited virtuosity and his endless melodic invention, as it is demonstrated here by such compositions as the twangy "Lunchtime at Rosie's" (performed in collaboration with fellow guitar god Eric Johnson), the almost bluesy "Not Remotely Blue" and the mournful "Hymn for Jaco." Legg plays in a cascading fingerpicking style that derives as much from bluegrass banjo technique as anything else, and he has an uncanny ability to bend the strings in a way that imitates the sound of a pedal steel. But despite all of the clear influences on his playing, his remains a truly unique and immediately recognizable style. Highly recommended. ~ Rick Anderson
Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (10-11/99, p.86) - "...Legg demonstrates the fluency in both composition and technique that has made him one of the most innovative guitarists around today. Combine that with his underlying sense of humor and the ability to write many different styles, and you have one of the better guitar recordings released this year..."
