CRANKY YANKEE who are your favorite guitarists: part 2 (84* d) RE: BS: who are your favorite guitarists: part 2 10 Jan 02

Y'Know, Kendal and curmudgeon, we cranky types have a lot more in common than I thought at first. add, Carlos Montoya
Tom Paley
Paul Geremia
Zeb Turner ( the nashville studio guitarist befor chet Atkins)
Chet Atkins
Merle Travis
Hank Snow

Zeb Turner was the lead guitarist for Elton Britt and Me when we toured Ontario in 1957. He is (or was) the compleat guitarist. He plays Bach (as written) a few of Mozart's piano sonata which he adapted to the guitar, Flamenco, and, in fact,any type of music one can think of.
Paul Geremia also plays all kinds of stuff besides blues and ragtime, when we're just hangin' aound jamming.

I don't think Lester Flatt originated any Bluegrass runs. Before Bill Monroe pulled old time stuff out of the dust, polished them up and called it "Bluegrass" We "old Farts" were playing the same guitar runs that Lester Flatt Uses. I do not want to give the impression that Lester Flatt is just a good old guitar picker and singer. His and Earl Scruggs' contribution to the development of the "Bluegrass" genre was considerable. They were pioneers, but not in guitar bass runs.
