Acoustic instrumental guitar. Dan himself says in the liner notes to Plaids, “You can hear the storied footsteps of the Celts haunting these tunes along with the melodies, rhythms and harmonies of jazz, country, music from the mid-East and Eastern Europe and yeah, my heart still belongs to rock and roll. It is this coming together that is Plaids. In a sense, everything that has had its effect on what I write and play are the diverse bits and shapes and I am the structure, the pattern that organizes it all.”

“From the bittersweet tenderness of ‘I Wish I Was’ to the acoustic stylings of ‘Spruced Up (Old Wood)’, Lambert allows us to share in some of the influences that make his brand of creativity so interesting… InPlaids he displays the great musicianship that has come to be expected of all of his works.”
