Don Alder and Aia Vecchia Lagone

Mid-week and time for a “mellow” break. Don Alder is my featured guitarist for tonight. He has awards galore that include place second at the 2006 Winfield International Finger Picking Championships and winning it in 2007. He has an expansive range of styles as you will hear when you view the videos below. He can range from sweet melody like “The Wall,” to the frenzy of Double Cappucino, which sounds exactly what I feel like after drinking an entire pot of French press coffee. Rather than expound further, I will let you listen to the music.

The Wall:

Double cappuccino: I never imagined anyoe could capture the feeling one gets after a double, but here it is.

Ballad: After the previous number, this is just what you’ll need to mellow out.

Finger’s Fingers:

Blue Shift Principle: 


He said, she said:

Dr. Dr.:

Not a planet:

Man from Lady Lane:

To get you ready for the rest of the week, try a 2006 Aia Vecchia Lagone ($19.00) from Tuscany. On the nose there are aromas of black currents, cherries, and figs. The taste is loaded with more black currents, cherries, and a bit of pie dough with a bit of pepper spice. Feels full bodied in the mouth with solid tannins and a long flavorful finish. A delicious wine to make your mid-week divine. Enjoy!
