A must for playing Carter Family songs
on May 29, 2003
Fred Sokolow's description of Maybelle Carter's "scratch" style and slide guitar techniques are simply written and easy to follow. The combination of having the lyrics, standard notation and guitar tablature is fantanstic! A beginner can easily get into most of these songs, if you can get beyond re-tuning. But it would probably take a more advanced player to appreciate the nuances of her playing. I also play banjo and have used the standard notation to compose banjo solos. No matter what your level of guitar, if you love the Carter Family songs, you'll love this book!
