Waters of Life – Composed & Performed by Dave Hussey. The beauty of Lake Pend Oreille served as the inspiration for this musical piece played on acoustic guitar by Dave, enjoy!
Dave Hussey is a board member of Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper and has been playing guitar for nearly fifty years and started writing music for the guitar about forty years ago. Dave taught beginning guitar lessons from an early age.
Dave plays a style of acoustic guitar referred to as “finger-style.” This type of playing involves the use of the thumb to establish a rhythm on the bass strings which frees the remaining fingers to play melody and counterpoint in a manner somewhat similar to playing piano. Many piano songs have been transcribed for guitar and vice versa.
Mr. Hussey has developed a passion for playing guitar over the years that continues an upward trajectory, both in personal enjoyment and satisfaction and a deep love of encouraging people, young and not so, to find the same “friend” in music. There are no boundaries.
