Hayden Pedigo – “Signal Of Hope”

On Friday, fingerstyling guitarist Hayden Pedigo will release his new album, The Happiest Times I Ever Ignored. Pedigo has already shared two songs, the album’s lead single “Elsewhere” and the title track, and just ahead of release he’s sharing one more: “Signal Of Hope.”

“‘Signal Of Hope’ is the most British-sounding thing I’ve ever written, and I’m insanely proud of how this song turned out,” explains Pedigo. “I was aiming to capture the refined, clean-picking style mastered by Bert Jansch and John Renbourn, which sounds very classic to me. It’s a very technically challenging guitar piece, and it took a long time to fine tune the sound in the studio to capture the exact feeling I was hoping to convey. When it all finally came together, I felt like I got really close to making the perfect acoustic guitar instrumental.”
