A Guitar Player's Dream--Clarence White on Video
Dr Victor S Alpher | Austin, Texas, U.S.A. | 10/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
"In adapting "McReynold's Style" mandolin picking and Earl Scruggs' three finger rolls to guitar flatpicking, Clarence White became not just a stylist, but also a pioneer in a new style of approaching the guitar that is as astouding to hear and see today as when this video was filmed. By this time, his "B-Bender" licks mimicking the pedal steel guitar were already classics on Byrds recordings, and he was beginning to mix his guitar artistry with his brother Rolad, and Byron Berline on fiddle, who appear in this video--before the Flying Burrito Brothers were named. This is a classic DVD from the days of television of which I'd like to see a great deal more--and I know there are vast archives. Cut down by a drunk driver in the prime of his life, Clarence White will always stand as one of the giants of the dreadnought guitar masters, one who made a sound that is often imitated, but rarely equalled. Watch this video to find out why!"
