Best Video I Own...
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This video is a virtual goldmine and it has wowed every person I've shared it with since I purchased it. Highlighting four of the greatest flatpicking guitarists in history (Doc Watson, Tony Rice, Dan Crary, and Norman Blake), this video captures these virtuosos at their best, performing some of their greatest jams. With two distinctly different versions of Black Mountain Rag (Doc's and Dan's), All-Star jams of Tony Rice favorites like Cold On The Shoulder and Nine Pound Hammer (with Sam Bush, Bela Fleck and crew), Norman Blake's mellow picking sessions with his Rising Fawn String Ensemble, and my personal favorites, Dan Crary's breathtaking solo medleys in which he masterfully weaves together multiple traditionals into unbelievable individual jams. The entire video is amazing, and includes lots of rare footage, including Doc and Merle Watson jamming a duo, Doc and Jack Lawrence pickin at MerleFest, and much much more. Anyone who really appreciates flatpicking guitar or bluegrass music MUST own this video."
