Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up February 21st, 2020
This week has been a ragtime re-re-revival week for me. Every few years I get reinspired to revisit the roots of my favorite guitar style. A few years ago it was fueled by Bethena and this incarnation was driven by The Entertainer. I was never quite happy with the arrangement that I had been modifying since 1975 when Leo Wijnkamp’s record Rags To Riches came out on the Kicking Mule label.
I spent most of today’s update browsing through a treasure trove of material that came out of an old box a few days ago. There were references to Jorma Kaukonen, The Doobie Brothers, Stefan Grossman, and John Renbourn, as well as photos from Happy Traum’s Fingerstyle book, and even a look at an old Guitar Player magazine.
I hope you enjoy the trip through memory lane I took.
