Guitarist and Composer Lawrence Blatt has been performing his finger-style-guitar compositions for over 30 years. His new release: "Fibonacci's Dream" is the culmination of that history in layers and organic part writing. With thirteen soothing guitar melodies, many of which are played in open tunings, the collection can be called 'acoustic solitude.' After spending years studying classical music as a violinist, Blatt's melodic yet intricate interaction of moods that lay beneath his alternate tunings are balanced by careful dynamics and intonation.

Just Before Dawn: Tuning: DADGAD Instrument(s): John How Custom Steel-String Acoustic Guitar As the old saying goes: “Sleep on it and things will become more clear in the morning.” In thinking about this album, one day, just before dawn, after eight hours of sleep, the concept became crystallized and I had a true understanding of where I wanted to take the music. This piece was written in that moment.
