F. Michael Haynie: "State of Mind" (Raul Midón). If you haven't heard Raul Midón, stop reading this article and look him up. Imagine a soulful, jazz-folk guitarist with a voice that can captivate you with its emotion and versatility. And, not only is he a jaw-slackingly virtuoso guitarist, but also an amazing writer. This song is all about finding that state of mind that lets you go forward and seize the world. Oh, PS, he's blind.
