About the Album
When I was around 17 years old, for several years the only guitar I had was a 12-string build by the great luthier Yaroslav Mach. He sold me that guitar for almost nothing, to replace a Suzuki guitar that had a wrapped neck that was unrepairable. I only later realized how special it was, that he helped me in this way. The guitar got damaged when it was hung up for sale in a store and as a replacement I got another guitar. I still kept the love for a 12-string, being a great Leo Kottke and Ralph Towner fan. In 2017 I got the chance to buy this ’70’ Guild F512. This is thé ultimate 12-string guitar. I was given the chance to buy this guitar by a very kind colleague who’s girlfriend told him to sell it to me as I would be playing it so much better then he would and anyone else that would have payed way more for it. And so he did. Wow! I am very greatful that he did. This piece is in honor to all my 12-string idols and for the guy that sold me that guitar. Bengggg refers to the explosion of sound that comes with that huge 12-string sound. For just a moment it grasps all of your attention and draws you into the music.
