Mudlark Judy Collins: Her Guitar Style (13) RE: Judy Collins: Her Guitar Style 03 Jan 05

I saw her live a couple of times in the 60's, cherished all her early albums, and never once even considered her guitar playing. It was simple, muted, understated and perfect for the songs she sang, never distracting, either by not "being enough" or being too much. There are singers who are also noticably good guitarists, but as many have said, a good singer, one who delivers a song with story-telling passion and grace, doesn't need to be anything more than that. And Judy Collins far surpasses being just good.
