The Country Guitar Style of Charlie Monroe

by Joseph Weidlich

Based on the 1936-1938 Bluebird recordings by The Monroe Brothers. One of the most popular acts of the 1930s was The Monroe Brothers, featuring Bill on mandolin and tenor vocals, and Charlie on lead vocals and rhythm guitar. This great overview of Charlie Monroe's unique guitar performance style (he used just his thumb and index finger) presents 52 songs, with an in-depth look at the backup patterns & techniques from each chord family (G, F, D, C, E, A), plus special note sequences, common substitutions and stock backup phrases. Includes the bluegrass classics "Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms," "My Long Journey Home" and "Roll On, Buddy," plus a discography and complete Bluebird recording session info. Notation only. 63 pp.
