ACOUSTIC | Preston Reed 

Put a guitar in the hands of Preston Reed and get ready to be amazed. No traditional chords, strums or finger picking here — just an astounding sonic display of melody, harmony, and percussion that is as exciting to watch as it is to hear. While others (notably Stanley Jordan) have tapped their way to electric guitar stardom, Reed has invented a way of obtaining a wondrous soundscape from an acoustic guitar. It's all about tunings, tapping, and rhythmic coordination, and it's nothing less than a reinvention of the instrument.

Preston Reed performs Friday, April 19, 8 p.m. at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue, $20-$25. 737-0137,;
