Subject: RE: I just discovered Joan Baez
hi Amy,

others can probably explain her style better than i, but, as far as i can hear, it's lots of walking bass, hammer on and off, a unique fingerpicking style and picking out melodies within her songs. i saw her on tv recently in concert singing "Diamonds And Rust". she was accompanying herself on guitar alone on a big stage. it was a stunning performance.
