Thread Name: The Carter Family: Shaping My Music
Subject: RE: The Carter Family: Shaping My Music
My first song was also "Wildwood Flower." I still do their tunes, they get better, and will always be a part of my music. Even though I flatpick I utilize the "Carter Style" of lead-pick-strum for several of my tunes.

I believe that I am "Thanking them" every time I use their style of music, or do one of their tunes, as to emulate is the highest form of flattery. It also keeps their spirit alive and well. Great Post!!
