  • Virginia-natives Maybelle, Sara, and A.P. Carter have played a large role in the country music world, recognized largely for their contribution of Maybelle's unique "thumb-lead" style. Having toured with Maybelle and spent considerable time with her sister Sara throughout 1960s and '70s, Mike Seeger is quite an authority when it comes to the Carter Family's guitar-playing styles. Here, Seeger demystifies the famous Carter sound by exploring some of their better-known songs, including "The Cannonball," "I Will Never Marry," "Pretty Polly," "You are my Flower," and "Little Darling Pal of Mine." With Janette Carter (Sara's daughter) offering stories about the family, and lending her voice to several of her mother's songs, Seeger illustrates several of the Carter Family styles through a varied song selection. Seeger demonstrates Maybelle's legendary picking style through the songs "Wildwood Flower," and "Jimmie Brown the Newsboy," while covering other techniques including: Sara's back-up style, country blues style, Hawaiian style, and the flat-pick style. Complete with music and tablature, GUITAR STYLES OF THE CARTER FAMILY is aimed at relative beginners, or more advanced guitar players hoping to master a new style.
