A member of Sonic Youth, which has been challenging and inspiring audiences for more than a quarter-century, guitarist Thurston Moore has always tirelessly championed his musical loves. Whether he's writing liner notes for obscure free-jazz reissues, championing young avant-garde musicians or even unabashedly worshipping pop-culture icons like Madonna, Moore has always had an ear for challenging and era-defining sounds.
Recognizing the acoustic nature of Moore's recent solo album, Trees Outside the Academy, World Cafe host David Dye asked him to share some of his favorite acoustic guitarists.
