Thread Name: Ragtime Guitar
Subject: RE: Ragtime Guitar
Forgive me, I didn't put the historical context to this I saw Stefan in the late 60s when he regularly played and appeared in London(UK)at a small folk club in Soho. Watching him simply pointed up the fact that I was not, and would never be prepared to devote the time and effort to acquiring that level of skill. I have a lot of difficulty with the period of time while learning when you are so bad that you sound awful I never really got over that. BTW another very talented Ragtime picker was John James who was also around at that time I noticed that they have re-released some of his albums on CD. A real treatif you can find them. Many thanks for your comments
