There is no advantage to either fingerpicking or flatpicking. In the hands of a talented musician both are equally pleasing to my ears. Today, I have posted two of my favorite fingerpicked tunes. If you are not familiar with the two styles and their differences, listen closely to Monday’s post and compare it with today’s.
Recorded 1926 - Sam McGee played with Uncle Dave Macon's Fruit Jar Drinkers for many years.
Recorded 1929 - John Dilleshaw was a big, left handed guitarist from Georgia best known for his whimsically-named band, Seven Foot Dilly & His Dill Pickles. The String Marvel was his earlier band.
