Acoustic Trench - Space Oddity (Bowie)

This guitarist sends his dog to sleep with a touch of Bowie.

Find someone who looks at you the way this pup looks at her musical master.

There's no better combination than great music and adorable fluffy pets – and acoustic guitarist Trench totally gets that.

As Trench begins to pluck out David Bowie's ‘Space Oddity’, his lovely Labrador Maple reaches her head forward to lean against her master's knee and soak up the beautiful music. There are fewer sights more emotional than seeing a dog well up from hearing her master play guitar.

‘Space Oddity’ made it into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll, and yet Bowie's psychedelic-rock song couldn't sound more perfect plucked out gently on guitar.
