CODY KILBY, BRAD DAVIS, TIM MAY 'Live In Kansas City'
Although this DVD has been on the market for over 2 years now, we feel it is worth pointing out to the significant number of guitarists in our customer base--amateurs and experts alike can learn from watching these super pickers. As in some previous DVDs from this label (Flat Picking Guitar), the 3 musicians sit next to each other and take turns playing breaks to a variety of tunes, with the camera focused primarily up close on the necks of the guitars, so fans are able to see exactly what the pickers are doing. There are 18 tunes and songs on this DVD, and we would give the following grades to the overall effort: an “A” for the picking, “B-“ for the selection of material, and “C” for the singing (it’s pretty weak, but it’s just on a few selections). Some of the most effective tunes are ANGELINE THE BAKER, UNCLOUDY DAY, SONG FOR SOPHIE, THE LONESOME FIDDLE BLUES and BIG TIMBER.
