Study the timeless music of old-time and early country artists such as the Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, and the Delmore Brothers. We will focus on the guitar parts for songs like "Wildwood Flower," "You Are My Flower," "Waiting For a Train," and "Brown's Ferry Blues" while also exploring sophisticated ways to accompany fiddle tunes.
