Sunday Neuguitars Playlist #11 “Glenn Jones”

Glenn Jones is a master of American Primitive Guitar, a style invented in the late 1950s by John Fahey. Jones, who led the post-rock ensemble Cul de Sac, brings his own made-up tunings, the use of custom-crafted partial capos, and a highly skilled picking style on both banjo and guitar, to create personal compositions that are lyrical, emotive and elegant.
