Thread Name: Pete Seeger as a guitarist
Subject: Pete Seeger as a guitarist
Everyone knows that Pete Seeger was and is an influential banjo picker. There'll probably never be any telling how many thousands upon thousands of people decided to at least TRY the banjo because of Pete.
My question is about Pete as a guitarist... I think he's a GREAT rhythm guitarist and he seems to use some interesting chord forms from time to time. I don't particularly care for when he apes Leadbelly (too slavishly imitative for me), but Pete certainly seems to be a very good, if not great, 12-string guitarist.
Pete Seeger as a guitarist... what are your thoughts on the eve of Martin Guitar Company's release of the Pete Seeger/Sing Out! 60th Anniversary 6- and 12-string guitars?
