Depression Era Country Guitar
Book with online audio. Explore how the traditional parlor style guitar backups used during the golden age of Old Time Music were further developed by guitarists during the Depression. The genesis of those developments lies in techniques popularized by the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers using a flat pick instead of a thumb pick, use of left hand embellishments including adjacent string drones, development of "hot licks" based on chromatic passing note sequences and syncopations, and the popularity of licks played on the higher pitched tenor guitar.
