Guitar duo revisit timeless classics on new disc

NORWICH – Longtime fans of guitarists Tom Rasely and Scott B. Adams may be surprised by the duo’s latest offering, “Beaten Paths, Country Roads.” And while it does bear some similarity to the dozens of albums the two have released in the last 30-plus years – with its focus on the guitar and their individual mastery of the instrument – it’s their choice in material that sets the disc apart.



The album features 13 instrumental tracks which run the gamut when it comes to classic rock and folk from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, from Paul Simon’s “Homeward Bound” to Elton John’s “Your Song,” “The Doors’ “Light My Fire” to Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight.”

Rasely called the album a departure from the more traditional, classically-based music he’s typically associated with. Recording these particular songs, he added, was the best way he and Adams could think to represent some of the most talented singer-songwriters who’ve ever composed, recorded and performed.
