Gotta hear it: Pop music

If you even sorta-kinda-maybe like great electric guitar playing and you have never seen Scotty Anderson, then your life is an empty travesty.

Nobody plays like this Kentuckian. His performances range from bluegrass to bossa nova to big-band swing to ballads, all with jaw-dropping technique. (He can play lines in multiple harmonies faster than most top guitarists can play single notes.) Through it all, he never sacrifices his down-home soulfulness.

No exaggeration: Anderson has reinvented the instrument. The best way to hear him this fall is at the release party for Classic Scotty, 8 p.m. Sept. 19 at the 20th Century, Oakley. $10. 624-9599.
