Thread Name: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
Subject: RE: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
Just skimming through, but didn't notice Maybelle Carter mentioned. I know she picked the melodies mostly with her thumb, but seeing that her playing is featured on some of the first country sides (i927), her influence can't be discounted. Along with the Delmores, she was one of the first recorded fingerpickers.
