Kaki King (amazing acustic guitar!)
    #4564998 - 08/22/05 12:40 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Quite a few months ago me and my friends saw this chick named Kaki King on the Letterman Show (I think it was Letterman). Let me tell you, I haven't seen someone play a guitar like this since Hendrix! But it's acustic!

She played it like it was a lap guitar (don't know what you would call those) by pressing the frets from the top side of the neck instead of from underneath it like traditionally is done.

She had big fake fingernails and did a fingerpicking style, but beat on the guitar as she was playing to create a drum beat. Then as the song got more intense she started swiping all five fingers across the strings and making these crazy ZING chords...

The audience was dead silent the whole time and when she was done they just exploded with applause! Lettermans jaw was on the floor and me and all my friends were just blown away! This girl has fucking TALENT!

No lyrics, no other band members, just her and an acustic!

I'm trying to upload the song we saw her play that night, but my roommate has the CD and is asleep. The file is on my comp, but in .wma format and the damn server won't accept it.

If anyone can tell me how to convert the file to MP3 then I'll try and get it on here tonight, but otherwise you'll have to wait until tomorrow...

the song played on letterman is called "Playing with Pink Noise". It's not my favorite, but it's pretty intense, trippy, and really showcases her talent and style.

My favorite song on the CD (which is called "Legs to Make Us Longer") is the last one, track 11, "My Insect Life". Really pretty song...

Get her first CD, it's also simply amazing...

I saw her open for G. Love early this year, and have been a fan of hers for a couple now.

She's incredible
