Trace Bundy

It's one thing to listen to Trace Bundy on record, but it's a whole other experience to actually see the guitarist — one of the finest acoustic fingerpickers around these parts — do his guitar gymnastics firsthand, from two-handed finger tapping and percussive slapping to looping phrasing and using multiple capos. There's a reason that Boulder's "Acoustic Ninja" has racked up more than 21 million views on YouTube: People want to see Bundy in action for themselves. Those folks will undoubtedly be in heaven with Elephant King, Bundy's latest release, which includes both a studio disc, which showcases some stellar fretwork, as well as a live DVD recorded at the Boulder Theater last December, which allows fans to get a glimpse of the fretmaster in his native environment doing what he does best, and then marvel at how he actually pulls it all off.
