Where stylistic acoustic guitar pioneer Michael Hedges had his tavern regular “Barbara”, and Willie Nelson has his tattered and road worn “Trigger”, ambient acoustic guitarist David W Donner has his Eterna. Granted, Eterna is more properly the manufacturer's model name, and less a pet name—but the individuality the artist gives it is no less storied and remarkable. “In and of itself, it's nothing special; it's an inexpensive Yamaha model,” Donner explains in the album liner notes, “[it] was a Christmas present from my grandmother. Though it will never sound like a high end Taylor, after the wood has aged over two decades, it has developed a much deeper and richer tone.”
David W. Donner's first full-length album of all original music, Eterna is an eclectic instrumental acoustic guitar recording, combining modren fingerstyle, meditative, and blues elements to create David's unique sound.
