The Sift is home to some great guitar pickers young and old. I particularly love the old country styles.
This list will mostly lean (hopefully) toward a Piedmont, mountain style that's my personal favorite, but there are modern, bluegrass and Mississippi Delta blues examples here too. Oh, and Chet Atkins will be here no matter what style he's playing.
Get yourself a plate of greens,fatback,cornbread, a glass of buttermilk and enjoy.
Chet Atkins has earned the well-deserved title "Mr. Guitar".posted by swampgirl 1 decade 2 years 5 months 2 weeks ago • 2,423 views

I'm adding "vintage" to this clip because Doc Watson has a long history with old mountain music. Heck,he himself is vintage. Hear this one out to the end, it's worth it.posted by swampgirl 1 decade 2 years 1 week ago • 2,449 views

See the other couple of clips to really appreciate this fella. In one he shows one guitar made from grandma's headboard. This was filmed in 1998 on his ranch in Arkansas. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75sCISLjmXQ ... continue readingposted by swampgirl 1 decade 1 year 10 months 3 weeks ago • 1,250 views
