Doc Watson - American Musical Treasure.

Hello any and all, besides trying to break in my new old guitar, which had sat in my grandmother's closet for a  decade or more - I'm also forever trying to make a living online. . . .which I tell you, is probably about as easy as would be trying to make a living as a Bluegrass guitarist.  VERY HARD!

 

Anyway, I produced an article as a tribute to my love of Doc Watson, and hopefully you too share that love of Doc for not only his music, but for his CHARACTER as well.  I've found that the average attention span of a web page reader is rather limited, so I hope that you will all forgive me for the brevity of this thing - it's more of an introduction to who Doc Watson is for the uninitiated.  I could have went on for ten thousand words or more - but nobody can seem to read articles that long online. . . .

Also, I have to admit that I had no idea until I started putting this short article (linked above) together that there was a Doc Watson sculpture in existence.  Such are the perils of being broke and living in North East Texas. :=\

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "

"Hello David, sorry for the late reply - I had not visited this site for years. Unfortunately, I do not have tabs for Man of Constant Sorrow - the video you saw was recorded by somebody who had requested me to teach them the song - I only played it…"
