Pete Seegar never taught me any music but his red banjo book helped me learn to play. I haven't always liked his stuff but I have always admired his musicallity. He never taught me politics or swayed me politically because we seldom agree completely. But I have watched him and listened to him for nearly 40 years and in doing so I have learned how to perform from him. I have learned to to study and to know my sources and to research completely. I have learned to see both sides and hear the others opinion , even if I didn't agree with it. But mainly I have learned integrity from him and thats what makes him a remarkable man.
