At age 16, Reed was inspired by Jefferson Airplane's rootsy blues offshoot, Hot Tuna, with guitarist Jorma Kaukonen. He then studied John Fahey and Leo Kottke. At 17, Reed played his first live gig, supporting beat poet Allen Ginsberg at the Smithsonian Institute. Preston Reed has virtually reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played. Reed plays a flamboyant "self invented" style, characterized by percussive techniques and simultaneous rhythm and melody lines that dance and ricochet around each other, giving his music a level of excitement that is unparalleled today.
