Monte Montgomery – An Amazing Human Being

by

Peggy and I saw him again at the Granada last Friday, and he was even better than the first time around.  If you aren’t familiar with Monte, stop reading this post right now and watch him playing Little Wing.  He writes his own material for the most part, but does a few covers as well and this is one of his best.

His style is impossible for me to describe.  He plays an Alvarez acoustic harder than most guys play a Stratocaster, but he isn’t just a hard rocker.  He can go from a whisper to a scream effortlessly and plays so fast and so clean that it almost sounds like a recording.  He doesn’t sound like anyone else and that’s a very good thing.

Catch him in the small venues while you can folks.  If he ever hits the big time, there won’t be a comedown.
