Dakota Midday: Guitarist Trace Bundy

Colorado guitarist Trace Bundy doesn’t play the guitar the way most do. He frequently uses both hands on the fretboard, tapping out notes with his fingers to create an intricate mix of melody, harmony and rhythm. His guitar skills have earned him the nickname “Acoustic Ninja.”

Before pursuing a full-time music career, Bundy taught rock and ice climbing and was an adjunct civil engineering professor at University of Colorado Boulder.

Bundy performs in Rapid City Saturday evening at the Dahl Arts Center. He joined Dakota Midday and discussed how he developed his unusual style of playing.
