I grew up in Texas where I had a preacher friend. I once asked him his philosophy about preaching persuasively. He said, "It's simple. I tell them what I'm gonna tell them, I tell them, and then I tell them what I told them!"

So here's my final heads-up. Kaki's definitely on the Letterman Show tonight.

I hope you get to see the show.

Kaki's Dad

You seem to be here with the sole intent of spamming the boards. All of your 21 posts so far have to do with promoting your daughter. That's not what these forae are about.

Not cool.

Take no notice popcritic, some poeple here are interested in your daughter's skills.

Well I've heard of Kaki, but never heard her, so my Tivo type device is to record Letterman tonite.

She's a killer player, absolutely the real deal and this is one instance when I for one am happy to be spammed.

by chance i watched her perform, and was awed. i've never seen anything like that. it was interesting how she foccused so much on the rhythms as well as guitar parts.

does she play more status quo stuff too, or is that her "style"

anyway, she gets a 7 thumbs up

Saw the show, and was impressed.

But...she has the stage presence of a soaked hamster.

Great player though.
Anyone know how old she is, as she looked pretty young?
(which could account for a little 'stage fright', I guess)

Hey she played a really demanding solo piece great on National TV, so I guess any stage fright wasn't too bad. Personally I'm glad she didn't whip out any "stage moves".

A poser she's not.

Dear Kaki's Dad,
If you paid for guitar lessons, you'd better get your money back. She plays guitar TOTALLY wrong!

\:D

Ah, obviously, just kidding. Well, let me say this, I sometimes stay up for Letterman musical guests and often times, I am dissapointed. Not the case Monday. I watched it on two different feeds. The song was as beautiful as she was.

The second time watching it, I was able to take it all in more. When she finished, I distinctly felt a breeze though my teeth, as my jaw was dropped open. No kidding. I didn't know what to expect, but this wasn't even close.

LOVE the creativity! Please send my thanks for that to her.

(My son began playing the guitar while it was laying down on the ground. When he gets on Letterman, I'm gonna Spam the HECK out of you guys!)

Anyway, Kaki, nice work. Really enjoyed it. Guitar picks are $.25 each. Save yourself the money, keep playing like you do.

Believe it or not I checked into the forum to see if anyone knew anything about that weird guitar player on David Letterman.(It get's shown here in Australia)I've seen Tommy Emmanuel do something similar. If the proud dad is still around - what can you tell us about her? Does she play 'normal'guitar as well? PS 'Someone who's kid gets to play on tv on a show shown all around the world is no 'spammer'
Congrats to the kid and her dad!

Thanks everyone for your kind words. Far be it from me to not respond to the member "down under" in Sydney.

Plucked, here are four links that are informative about Kaki:

1) December 2004 feature interview by Acoustic Guitar Magazine:

http://www.acousticguitar.com/article/144/144,6116-StandingOvation-1.asp

2) Her booking agency (btw she quit wearing the lip ring in September):

http://www.rosebudus.com/king/index.html

3) Her Sony Artist website:

http://www.sonymusic.com/artists/KakiKing/

4) Archived NPR Weekend Edition streaming interview run on November 21, 2004:

http://www.npr.org/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=10&prgDate=21-Nov-2004

Finally, if you have a little time to kill, put "Kaki King" in Google.com (use the quotation marks).

Plucked, she'll be touring Japan in March and hopes to get some Australia bookings while she's over there. Stay tuned.

Seasons Greetings to Everyone--

Dave King
Kaki's Dad

Thanks Dave - I'll check out the links soon as I get time. There are some big music festivals and such here in Australia where she would go down really well I think, such as the Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival. If she plays in Sydney I'll definately be there.

Just listened to the NPR program all I can say is "Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh.........." Brings a tear to the eye.Please tell Kaki Australia beckons. We've gotta a humble little venue called the Sydney Opera house - I saw Leo Kottke there a few years back. And another guitarist with a penchant for whacking the crap out of his guitar, Bob Brozman, has played several times at The Basement.
So,hey - we've got the venues, and by now after the Letterman Show probably half the guitar pickers,music fans and promoters in the country are talking about her - all we need is Kaki.
Many thanks Dave and have a happy Xmas and hope the new Year holds many more exciting things in store for you and Kaki.
