Eric Bachman - Music Review


Visitors: 151

Eric Bachman played the Casbah Thursday to an emptier house than he is accustomed to. He was traveling solo this time. He played a handful of new songs and some of his classic Crooked Fingers pieces. It was very interesting to see him play solo.

He started the night off playing electric guitar with his pod effect pedal that allowed him to get a loop going that he played over. I was hoping to hear more of that.

You know, more layers of sound. Playing solo and listening to soloists can be terribly difficult and boring. We've all seen our share of guitars and singers. But, Eric's voice is what warms your heart. He sings songs of love and horror. Mature lyrics coupled with his experience of being on the road forever.

He picked up his nylon string guitar and played a handful of new songs that were both great and difficult. In the full band of Crooked Fingers you can get this amazing drone of sound, loud sound. With the nylon string guitar he would approach these driving songs and sometimes hit and sometimes miss. The fragility itself was riveting. The out of key notes added flavor.

This man knows what it means to play live and soloing for anyone is a challenge. I had an interesting night of thinking listening to his songs.
