My oh my! First listen. Still grinning.
Most excellent acoustic playing skills
Been pick in most my life Im 62 now never heard a technician like Preston ever...
Heard on pandora kaki king station !
This guy is awesome first time hearing and im hooked !
Great Stuff !! YES !
I'm a first timer & very much impressd by such talent. No wonder I fell in love when I first heard about Kaki King, via AUGUST RUSH.!!!
Great work. Got him on my Leo Kottke channel!
Amazing! I heard this on my Pandora Michael Hedges station. I'm so psyched to hear someone with such rhythm and musical energy. I'm going to have to find more of his stuff! Definitely going to check out his Acoustic Guitar album that evettebiz mentioned. I'm so sad that Michael Hedges has been gone all these years, but this is a wonderful new discovery!!!

Wikipedia has some interesting info about Preston Reed—http:// e n . w i k i p e d i a . o r g / w i k i / P r e s t o n _ R e e d .
Check out his vids on YouTube. Amazing to see as well as hear!

Unbelievable !

God blessed him with those hands. Nice style.

first album i heard by Preston Reed was Acoustic Guitar recorded in 1978. most likely he did not hear Michael Hedges first. a little reading up on this says that he did hear him later on, most lilkely they influenced each other. give Acoustic Guitar a listen, it's obvious that this was his own style even back then

Had to stop and check out this guy as I was sure it was Michael Hedges....aw e s o m e work but Michael is terribly, terribly missed!I like to think that maybe Preston was so inspired by Mr. Hedges and this is a tribute to him, maybe? There will never be another Michael!
Yet another Michael Hedges wantabe. P.S. The music for August Rush may have been performed by Kaki King but it was a Michael Hedgers tune. Seek out the real thing . Michael Hedges is without peers!
Used to think Preston musta sold his soul to the devil to get hands like that.
Now I'm pretty sure the devil sold his soul to Preston.
Oh man, just found this guy. F**king good.
the Music for August Rush was done by Kaki King another accomplished Guitarist of this genre who is soo underrated. Please if you enjoy this style seek her out!
I do not know how it happens... but I like it! Smoooookin guitar......

Oh, so nice.
I have to thank the people who put together the music for August Rush soundtrack for getting this style on the screen and into my home. Big thanks to the Pandora group for hooking us to more talented musicians.
KICKass, I love this music
cat73
Schweeeet. Ladies Night. Love it.
Very Nice
Wow. Awesome.
me likey
No Dobro for Mr. Reed - he's an acoustic guitar fingerpicker who applies basically his whole body in a fabulous way. For Dobro we must turn to the masters Jerry Douglas, Mike Auldridge, and Rob Ickes. There are many other, lesser players. What an instrument!

This is FANTASTIC ! ! Is this what's called DOBRE ?
Incredable such a clean sound and the complexity of the rhythm mmmman I've heard alot of em but wow!!!
astrotrout1
Such a clean sound! His compositions stay interesting and challenging throughout!
cadfaelrose
i am mesmerised by "stonecutter " .
Sounds like music from the "August Rush" soundtrack. Good stuff
compass70
I never get tired of hearing this - I appreciate the complexity of the rhythms. Simple and not just a series of random riffs.
hurts my feelings its so beautiful, I would sell my soul to throw some beauty like that

Layer upon layer well woven. Great road music.
Saw him in Texas in 1983. Loved him then too!
transcending and truly powerful and inspiring picking.
Technique and melody in perfect proportion ...
some great pickin'
Reminds me of Keller Williams!
woodman17086
I don't play guitar but I know how to enjoy listening to it! Preston is great!
mandrew01
Phenomenal picking style and abilities... l i k e listening to how a cascading spring thaw waterfall might sound if rendered on a guitar
Never heard of Preston Reed but it's my loss.

Open Tuning means when the guitar is tuned to, basically, something *other* than the native E-A-D-G-B-E that guitar is normally tuned to. Drop D (tuning the low E down to D) is one such tuning, but there's plenty of other open tunings out there in use. Pierre Bensusan's publishing company (I think) is called DADGAD Music because he has a penchant for tuning to D-A-D-G-A-D. That's a fantastic open tuning, by the way.
