Re: Doc Watson Dead

When we speak of great guitarists of any style, Doc Watson is on everyone's list.  A tremendous talent and based on what other musicians had to say about him also a kind and thoughtful man.

Granted B chord amnesty by King of the Mutants (Long live the king).

Re: Doc Watson Dead

A nationally known artist and a local hero - We drive the Doc Watson Highway every time we go to the mountains. Amazing he was ever discovered from such a small town. Bluegrass wouldn't be the same without him RIP Doc.

From the article:

“He is single-handedly responsible for the extraordinary increase in acoustic flat-picking and fingerpicking guitar performance,† said Ralph Rinzler, the folklorist who discovered Mr. Watson in 1960. “His flat-picking style has no precedent in earlier country music history.†

Rule No. 1 - If it sounds good - it is good!

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.
