No one revolutionized country guitar playing like Merle Travis. He gave his name to an entire style of playing...or picking. There is very little video of Merle Travis in his prime, so Bear Family is very proud to present one of the geniuses of the guitar at the peak of his skills. Guitarists will be able to look at his fingers and try to figure out the deceptive simplicity of his style. Everyone else can just enjoy some relaxed, lyrical, and easy-on-the-ear country music. These 25 performances are a dazzling mixture of songs that Travis learned growing up in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, together with his hits. Most titles are the first time on DVD. The attractive DVD-Pack comes with a 16-page booklet with liner notes by Rich Kienzle. DVD format: NTSC / codefree / b/w. NTSC all region.
