GUEST,Pete Peterson Pete Seeger's Banjo virtuosity (133* d) RE: Pete Seeger's Banjo virtuosity 23 Jul 03


as I was barely getting involved with banjo and guitar, I came across a small article in a long-defunct NYC magazine called Caravan-- it was by Pete Seeger and was titled "Too many people listen to me (and not to the people I learned from)."

I think this has been his philosophy all these years (look at the cover to Where have all the flowers gone) that he sees himself as a link in a chain, bringing the music of others to a wider circulation. I think of him (as I ahve said before) as highly skilled at a lot of different styles, with the added gift of finding the BEST way (or at least a really good way) of matching the accompaniment to the song-- wow.
