Default New single "Airborne" video w/ Tabs

While recognizing my own experiences are comparable to drops in the ocean, “Airborne” is a piece I composed to illustrate the isolation, emotional turbulence and small triumphs I’ve felt since the beginning of the pandemic. Everyone has had an individual journey throughout this time - be it smooth sailing or stormy seas - and I wanted to dedicate this piece to those who have lost loved ones, their livelihood, or been separated from their lovers or families from closed borders.

Big thanks to Antoine Dufour for mixing/mastering, he really brought out the wide dynamics I hoped for with this tune.

The guitar is a Cedar/Rosewood OM handbuilt by Rebecca Urlacher in Bend, Oregon.

Filming locations include Washington DC, Norfolk, and Amsterdam International Airports as well as the dunes of Castricum, Netherlands

It was a pleasure putting this all together and I’m proud to share it with you all. Let me know what you think and feel free to share this if you enjoyed it. Tabs are available at www.dustinfurlow.com

Speechless Dustin. Just brilliant work all over, the playing, the guitar, the video, the production- all top notch.

It is such cliche that I'm sick of hearing it but we are truly all in this together. It is things like art and music we need to help one another get out of it together.

Well, Dustin!

I may have been sleeping somewhere for the last few years, but it seems to me that you have taken your art to a whole new level with this video and this composition!

Everything about this is extremely well done: excellent composition, delightful playing, terrific video work, top-notch recording work!

Besides all that, this sounds REALLY GOOD! Lovely textures and pretty melodies woven together combined with that percussive stuff you are doing.

I just watched this twice, trying to absorb all that I am hearing and seeing.

What a great job Dustin! Holy cow!

- Glenn

Absolutely top notch Dustin in all respects. In this melodic and slightly percussive style you're as good as anyone on the planet at the moment I would say........

Yeah Dustin, lovely song and playing. I love the percussion element which you embed very musical. Still the melody shine the most. Perfect!


Are you in Europe in November 2021? Karlijn is playing our little venue on the 6th...

I clicked on a Dustin Furlow in Show and Tell and expected an amazing quality recording, and got what I expected and more!

That guitar sounds so good and works perfectly with this song - bravo!

That was great! I love the sense of melody you bring alongside your technical skills. A lot of fingerstyle is just showing off tapping/acrobatics but you bring a wonderful musicality to your songs that blend melody and technique perfectly!

Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful playing, writing and instrument. Loved the percussion with the thumb and hands. A great nuance that adds to the overall feel of the song.

I agree 1000%, and thank you for the feedback buddy.

Yes I love Rebecca's signature rosette/headstock/backstrip theme she has adopted in this last year or so for her guitars. It's distinguishable and earthy looking. She has been building for over 20 years and to my knowledge has never worked for or with Breedlove. She did take the last available Somogyi voicing class though, which she has stated was a game changer for her.

Thanks so much Fred, I am always thankful for your feedback. And yes I'm still completely over the moon at the new about the upcoming Taran build for this fall!

I used 3 signals. Left/right Neumann KM-184s and a K&K Pure mini (that's the deep lows and full body percussion you are hearing) into an Apollo X4 and sent Antoine the 3 raw tracks and he handled the rest. I don't normally go for so much delay or reverb but this tune needed the dimension, I think.

Cheers buddy!

Thanks man! It's been a year in the making! Started it last March in my back yard..remember it was on a new Cordoba crossover I'd just bought off Reverb and it felt so great tuned down to C. Later switched to steel then did all the filming going to and from NL and now it's just out in the world and I couldn't be happier. It's a great feeling. I'm glad you enjoyed it man
