Somebody That I Used To Know – Mike Dawes

Mike Dawes and Amy Turk

Mike Dawes and Amy Turk

This just completely blows the mind away!

Mike Dawes improvisation of Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye. Far, far better than the original.

I saw Mike Dawes a couple of years ago when he and Amy Turk performed together. He was good then, but this is in another league altogether.

He is performing with Nick Benjamin’s 100th guitar (Alpine Spruce/Cocobolo).

On iTunes and Amazon, but why not bandcamp where a far better deal and for download far better sound quality? This cries out for FLAC download. [see mp3 v FLAC]

We need an album, or at the very least, an EP.

Steve Lawson has a successful career as a solo bass player. Mike Dawes as solo guitar player?

Released a couple of years ago, Reflections, an EP Mike Dawes and Amy Turk.

    I had expected Thursday afternoon to see a levelling off, instead seeing experiential growth.

    What a shame not on bandcamp as would have ridden on the momentum. Would have seen same exponential growth, some of which would have translated into downloads and sales.

    If nothing else this exposes the nonsense peddled by David Lowery that internet is bad for creative artists.
