“Luka” Acoustic Guitar Solo for Radio

So here we are again …

I am on this crazy road trip throughout Europe right now with Suzanne Vega and our crew of two, Mark and Phil.

Suzanne has a new record out called “Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles”

Because there is a new record out we have a pretty hectic schedule of not only proper shows but almost everyday we have to pop into a radio station or TV station to do quick acoustic versions of the songs. We play one or two new songs but also invariably we get asked to play the hits like “Luka”.

I found myself having to workout an acoustic version of “Luka” so we could easily do these quick hits without us having to slug all of our touring equipment in and out of these radio stations.

The solo was the challenge here , to find something with the structure of the melody but keeping it full sounding at the same time.

Here is what I came up with …

Filmed in the Van by Mark Dyde our super tech on his iPhone 5S.

Hope you guys enjoy.


P.S. The Guitar is a Furch Acoustic model 34SR
