Bonus MP3: Patty Larkin -- "Hallelujah"

Last year, I got the pleasure of interviewing singer/songwriter/guitarist Patty Larkin. Besides being friendly and funny, Larkin was also unafraid of claiming equal status with some of the best (predominately male) guitar players. And her 11th CD, Watch the Sky, which was released earlier this year, goes a long way in proving her chutzpah.

Dense soundscapes, some with a multi-cultural flavor, set the scene for Larkin to demonstrate her six- and twelve-string prowess. Catch her this Friday in the quiet confines of Uncle Calvin’s Coffee House.

Larkin may be a bit laid back and thoughtful to fit into the standard (boring?) guitar god clique populated by the likes of Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. If that’s your scene and you want a female qualifier check into Sylvia Juncosa and her 1988 effort Nature. Cut number three, "Lick My Pussy, Eddie Van Halen," may well be the best-titled guitar freak out in history.

Anyhow, here’s a bonus MP3 from Larkin...

Patty Larkin -- "Hallelujah"

It's a song that shows restraint can be just as effective as speed. --Darryl Smyers
