Don Alder

Don is a funky fingerstyle guitarist from Vancouver. He won the 2007 International Fingerpicking Championship in Winfield, KS, the third Canuck to do so since 1979.

Don uses a wide range of techniques on the guitar, from gentle grooves (see The Wall below) to an agressive physical style that makes me tell my guitar, “That’s how I’m going to play you, if you don’t behave.” (Check out DR DR at YouTube)

Check out his tune “The Wall” on YouTube.
