Ever since releasing his debut album Night Birds in 1987, Ed Gerhard has been on the forefront of American fingerstyle guitar. Playing both standard and lap-style slide guitar, Gerhard is a master of tone and subtle beauty, as heard on both his original compositions and arrangements of other pieces. In this video, Gerhard plays his beautiful version of the traditional folk tune “The Water Is Wide” (originally recorded on his 1997 album, Counting the Ways), on his custom Breedlove Revival guitar.
