VARIOUS ARTISTS 'New Standards For Flatpicking Guitar' FGM-105-CD

  • $13.50


What at first looked like another in Flatpicking guitar magazine’s fine annual series of discs of hot guitar pickers turns out to be something special. This particular record is devoted exclusively to guitar duets, and features a bunch of powerful combinations –how about BRYAN SUTTON & JEFF WHITE, KENNY SMITH & DAVID GRIER and JAMES ALAN SHELTON & CHRIS JONES for starters? As one might expect there are a few tunes here that really don’t do much, but overall the quality of the music is very high – both the picking and the tunes themselves (all of which are new compositions). Some of the best are BRITTLEBRUSH (Peter McLaughlin & Scott Nygaard), CHESTNUT FLATS (Tim Stafford & James Alan Shelton) DELAWARE TAN (David Grier & Tim Stafford), NORTHFORK OF THE HOUSTON (James Alan Shelton & Chris Jones) and the lovely SONG FOR EMILY by Kenny Smith & David Grier. A real treat for lovers of flat-picked guitar. ZOBERN, JORDAN’S REEL, DJANGO & AL, MT. DORA WALTZ, VELVET HAMMER, etc.
