Media The Guitar of Merle Travis  DVD

Merle Travis's playing combined blues, jazz, ragtime and country music into a unique style that defined "country fingerstyle guitar." In this exciting DVD lesson, Marcel Dadi teaches seven of Merle's greatest instrumentals: "Fuller's Blues," "Cane Break Blues," "Blue Bells," "Saturday Night Shuffle," "Memphis Blues," "Cannon Ball Rag," and "Walkin' the Strings." All the tunes are transcribed in a 60 page tab/music booklet. The DVD also includes five rare performances from 1951 of Merle Travis playing "Nine Pound Hammer," "Lost John," "John Henry," "Mus'rat" and "Too Much Sugar for a Dime."
