Dear Rod

it has been 1 year since your passing, we all miss you, your spirit, and of course your amazing just intoned solo guitar. but where ever you are, i am sure you are reaching even greater heights of understanding and bliss.

this piece has always sent chills down my spine, but now maybe even more so. i will cherish this recording for all the rest of my days, and i hope all the music lovers out there will as well.



rest in peace

Thanks for posting this - we do need to keep Rod's music in the public eye - he left a unique legacy of work.

Hello--

I just discovered your blog and I am in love!

Looking through the old posts I was astonished to find two lengthy posts on a hero of mine, the neglected Asmus Tietchens. Any chance you'd consider reposting links to some of those albums?

Cheers,

Roland

I'd like to second the request for a re-up of Inuit Vocal Games. Thanks.

Will we ever get to hear the record Rod made shortly before his untimely end, the one he had to get mastered twice?

Thanks, I haven't heard this for a few years. Looking forward to hearing it again - it's a great album!

Thanks for this one. I read about Rod's untimely death in The Wire, and I was absolutely moved to tears. I encourage everyone to listen to this amazing artist as he was one of the consummate guitarists of his time.

Best, Kevin
