Strange AttractorsChuck Johnson : A struggle not a thought (US,2004)****
Former member of Spatula, Idyll Swords, (from which I have reviewed one album before) and Shark Quest, Chuck Johnson was already effective before showing a vision as a guitarist. In a way he continues the finger style tradition of what was called primitive American guitar. He’s very melodic, at times lyrical in his playing, going from open moody to old time memories in rather melodic territories. There can be a steady rhythm play with some fingers, but the melodious inspirations can completely stand on its own too, finding its own developments.
