  • D.K. Williams


  • Some observations:

    1. ‘Classical Gas’ has been a favorite instrumental since I first heard it many years ago.

    2. I’d always thought it was played on a 12-string guitar.

    3. I didn’t realize harps came in portable models.

    4. Why is she fiddling with her tuning during the performance?

    5. Good stuff.
