patient_ot Recently I've become a huge fan of Jeff Pearce's work, though I have been aware of his music since the late 90s. This is guitar-based instrumental ambient music done right. I hope he makes more of his out of print recordings available here on Bandcamp.

Brett Christensen This is one of my favourites of Jeff's work; moving, calming, beautiful. Some of the pieces feature clear, echoing guitar notes woven in to a backdrop of ambient guitar.
