Sinking Stone
Mike Pachelli demonstrates a great song, “Sinking Stone,“ written by Jeremy Lister and recorded by Alison Krauss and Union Station. The song is off her 2011 album, Paper Airplane.
 
Alison Krauss has won 27 Grammy’s, which ties her and Quincy Jones at number two. That alone is proof positive of her wide-appealing talent. She has the ability to make a song completely her own, which is especially true of “Sinking Stone.” If you have the pleasure of hearing the song’s composer Jeremy Lister sing it, you’ll clearly hear the differences.  
 
“Sinking Stone” is a wonderful combination of introspective lyrics about a love gone bad, and a wonderful instrumentation bed to highlight the sorrow of the song.

Mike plays an Epiphone SST Classic in this lesson.


Mike Pachelli
    Mike Pachelli started playing guitar as a youngster in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio. His earliest influence was Wes Montgomery who Mike says, "first opened my ears to the possibilities on guitar." Pachelli studied classical guitar at YSU and then moved to New York City to study bebop with guitar luminaries Joe Pass and Pat Martino. Mike's guitar style is an amalgamation of blues, jazz, rock, and neo-classical. He has a wealth of musical experience gained thru years of night clubs, concert halls, and recording studios. He's performed all over the U.S. and Europe with some of the most eclectic jazz, blues, pop and rock musicians including Brother Jack McDuff, Albert King, Les & Larry Elgart, Michael Sembello, Crystal Gayle, Barbara Mandrell, Jeanne Mas, Phil Keaggy, Frank Stallone (to name a few) and has done classical symphony concerts touring with Ferrante and Teicher.
