认识Trace Bundy是从他弹的CANON开始的，网络上有很多视频，大家可以淘来看一下，如果不是亲眼所见你不会想到一首CANON是这样被演奏出来的。很多吉他大师都可以仅用一只左手演奏完整的曲子，但Trace Bundy左手应该是世界上最强的了（个人观点），
他右手精确快速的泛音技巧也是我们望尘莫及的，Trace Bundy的风格听起来没有Masaaki Kishibe细腻唯美，他的音乐是开放的粗旷的自然的。这张专辑运用了大量的高难度技巧但听起来却不是那么生硬。
I was born in Austin, MN (you know, where SPAM is made) and moved to the small town of Buena Vista, CO. I first started playing guitar when I was about 11 or 12 years old when my brother Greg and I both chipped in $5 to buy a $10 acoustic guitar from a guy named Herbie. We didn’t know where to start so we picked up a guitar magazine and learned how to play a song by Metallica. Although I was not a fan of heavy metal, that was what I originally learned to play, on acoustic guitar of course. Shortly after, I learned how to play some chords and songs like Johnny B. Goode and various Def Leppard hits.
I could never afford lessons so everything I learned was on my own, learning other people’s songs, making up my own stuff, etc. I became very interested in why music sounds good and why different notes and chords seem to work together. This got me very interested in music theory. I started to figure out the patterns that exist in most music, and started to put names to my discoveries like “Trace’s 7 chord theory”, etc. (later in college I took a basic music theory class and found that all of my discoveries already existed and had big important sounding names). The more music theory I learned, the more I started writing my own songs, trying to incorporate my new discoveries into my music.
I met Jonah Werner (now a rising acoustic folk songwriter star) in high school and started playing with him at the (only) local coffee shop in Buena Vista – mostly Jackopierce and other various folky songs. I then hooked up with Tim from Newcomers Home and started playing old Dylan and Cat Stevens tunes. We all attended CU in Boulder, CO and still continue to play together from time to time. Meanwhile, my style of playing started gaining influence from a variety of musicians such as David Wilcox, Ani Difranco, and Phil Keaggy. I stopped using a pick when I realized I could play more complex music using all five of my fingers. My musical style continues to change as I experiment with different ideas and explore new territories.
It’s been such a great journey from the time when I first played that old acoustic guitar (thanks Herbie). I truly enjoy the guitar and look forward to the times throughout the day when I can pull it out and try out some new stuff. I have so much fun whenever I play and consider it a blessing to get to share my music with other people. I hope you enjoy!
我出生在美国明尼苏达州的奥斯汀（出产SPAM[当地一种食品品牌]}），后来搬到了科罗拉多州布埃纳维斯塔的一个小镇。我第一次弹琴时大约11-12岁，那时候我和我的哥哥Greg各凑了5美元从一个叫Herbie的哥们那买了把10美元的木琴，但是我们不知道从哪学起，于是我们找了一本吉他杂志开始学习怎么演奏Metallica(正如他的名字，金属乐队)的歌曲。尽管我不是一个重金属迷，在我刚学吉他的时候我还是用木琴练习这些曲子。不久之后，我开始学习和弦还有Johnny B. Goode的歌曲和Def Leppard的各种技巧
在高中我遇到了Jonah Werner（现在成为了创作型民谣歌星）并且和他一起在布埃纳维斯塔唯一的一家咖啡店里演出-大多演奏的是Jackopierce的歌和其他民谣歌曲。后来经介绍我认识了新来的Tim并且和他一起演奏old Dylan和Cat Stevens的东西。后来我们在科罗拉多大学波尔得分校认识了CU并且和他不停的练琴。那时候我的演奏风格受到了各种音乐家比如David Wilcox，Ani Difranco，Phil Keaggy的影响。当我意识到我可以用五根手演奏更复杂的音乐时我放弃了拨片。随着对不同想法的实验和不同领域的探索我的音乐风格也变化着。
