Thread Name: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
Subject: RE: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
Again, I am not saying that there was not great guitar playing--I am saying that it was created from diverse elements into new styles--really innovation, not tradition, in order to satisfy the performing and recording needs of relatively recent times. There seems to be no traditional guitar style to accompany the traditional cowboys songs, no traditional appalachian guitar style, etc--
