Trace Bundy is the kind of guitar player best experienced live, because the ace two-hand tapper accomplishes so many Olympic fretboard feats that a good look helps inform a good listen. The “Acoustic Ninja” clearly understands that and wants the audience to understand what’s happening with his hands, so he goes entertainingly out of his way to let folks know. Guitar Player presented a Bundy show about five years ago and in review made the following observations:
“Like a magician who lets the audience in on his act before each trick, Bundy explained everything from the way he utilizes echoes and loops to the techniques he employs. His detailed explanations about utilizing open tunings and multiple capos made players and fans alike feel invested. His cover arrangements were innovative, and his insights on the origins of his originals made them feel instantly familiar. He floored sports fans with his rendition of ESPN’s SportsCenter theme that won him a spot on the actual show. He whipped out his iPhone and played a spot-on version of “Beat It” using the PocketGuitar app. In his hands, the acoustic guitar was an imagination station, and there was no telling where he was going take the audience at any given turn.”
What new tricks will Bundy bring to the table on December 21 for his Acoustic Holiday show at one of the most famous folk houses on the West Coast?
