“When I met Jim Hurst for the first time last summer, I was almost surprised to discover he has just two hands. He sure plays guitar like he has a couple of extras, using a blend of flat picking and finger picking to play bass lines, melody lines and support lines all at once. That how-does-one-guy-play-that approach is on display throughout Jim’s new self-produced CD, Intrepid. For 12 of the 13 songs, it’s just him – one voice and one guitar – laying it on the line. “It’s kind of like a courageous leap of faith,” he told me the other day. The stripped down production results in music that’s easy to listen to, but that makes you think without being preachy. Every time I play these songs, I “see” myself sitting in the dark, in front of a roaring fire, at my favorite cabin – even when it’s the middle of the day and I’m stuck in the middle of the city a couple of hundred miles away. That’s some powerful stuff. *Follow weblink to read entire review”

Q: Jim, Have you ever tabbed long and lonesome old freight train and do you use standard tuning? Thanks Bob
A: Hi Bob, Sorry but no, I haven't tabbed it, or hardly any of my songs - I don't read or write tab. It is in standard tuning except 'Drop D' - capoed second fret. Thanks for the question!
