Amazing sense of Harmony! I think it's time for me to quit playing guitar.

Ralph Towner is definitely one of my favourites. One of the first ECM records I bought was his solo LP Diary, and Icarus is on that album.

In 2008 I saw Wolfgang Muthspiel in a duo with Tunisian singer/oud player Dhafer Yousef, a fascinating combination. This track is from around that time...

Towner

Definely…….Towner is one of my heroes. He made it musically Ok for me to use dissonant chords years ago. Oregon always reminded me of a kind of acoustic Weather Report.

Here's Wolfgang brilliantly performing Thelonious Monk's "Round Midnight" on his Millie Eagle.

 

 

After watching this, I will no longer feel bad about bending my head way over to see what the hell my fingers are doing.  Even if it's hard on the back.

It's important that you look to see that you're putting your finger on the correct fret-thingy!

He now plays Moffa guitars (Italian luthier) but Heritage obviously served his needs for a long time.

 

 

This is really nice. However, when he went into the kind of overdriven tone I didn't much care for it. It lacked the fluidity that he has on his other tone. The whole thing sounded kind of like Miles Bitches brew era along with Metheny, Weather Report and the acoustic sound of Oregon.....heck, everything I like about that style! I can see why Towner would want to play stuff with him.

I sold a Heritage Millie Eagle 2000 to someone in Austria some time back.  This was it.  The pics are not very good.

The person who bought it said that there were two others in Austria, Muthspiel being the first.

This model is really cool.  One nice trick is to push on the tailpiece for a mild vibrato effect.
