One of planet earth's most celebrated stringed instrument virtuosos, David Lindley has lent his magic to the recorded works of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Rod Stewart, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Warren Zevon, Ben Harper and many others. About a year ago David was introduced to the TF740FS finger style Takamine. He fell hard. David sat down with us to discuss that magical slot head as well as other acoustic guitar related stuff. We have edited it into two parts, and would like to share part one with you now.
