Now this is very some picking technique to look at more then once! I was looking up one of Mississippi John Hurt’s tune on youtube and I just stumbled upon this beautiful guitar player named Elizabeth Cotton.
Her approach to the drone picking, looks like something that I would find easier, if in fact, I played guitar like her.
She makes it look so easy and effortless.
Her index finger bounces around the E and A string like my puppy when we tell her it’s time for supper! God it’s just beautiful to look at and hear.
Here she is a 92 years of age playing this song that she made up when she was 12 years old!
Come on everyone sign along!!!!!
Keep on playin’ Elizabeth Cotton wherever you are.
(Jan. 5, 1893 – Jun. 29, 1987)
