Subject: RE: advice sought from Nick Drake nerd
To me the music is like some exotic stone you find on the beach. As a guitarist (wouldn't call myself a musician in any real sense apart from a working one for most of my life - most music teachers have a better musical education than I had) - Nick's guitar style is terribly intense - rhythmic rather than melodic - but with extraordinarily complex chord shapes and sequences. Its almost like he wrestled with the guitar and brought forth beauty.
At this stage, i'm just looking for clues.
