Daniel speaks to Paul Richards, Bert Lams, and Hideyo Moriya, also known as the California Guitar Trio. The group uses a unique method of tuning their guitars which enables them to hit higher high notes, and lower low notes. This allows them to play classical compositions, such as Bach"s Moonlight Sonata, which are normally impossible on guitar. They play some songs from their latest CD "Pathways", demonstrating that they play not only classical music but rock and surf tunes as well. They kick off their tour of the western US tonight in Salt Lake City. For tour dates, visit their webpage www.cgtrio.com ("Pathways"; 1998 Discipline Records)
