Jan Akkerman first picked up a guitar aged 5. Legend has it that he played accordian aged 3, and was entirely self-taught on the guitar, but in actual fact he took classical guitar lessons, studied at Amsterdam Music Lyceum for 5 years and won a scholarship. His father was a guitarist, and his mother played the accordian. The best solo album by Jan Akkerman as far as I am concerned. The first couple of track are decent renditions of classical acoustic music.
Akkerman is a great guitarist who plays in the continental European style, which is different than how guitar was played in the US or U. Jan Akkerman is one of the most talented guitarists ever and this album is one of his best.
