Tony Rice - The Video Collection composed by Tony Rice. For Guitar (Flatpicking). Boxed, Concert/Documentary. Vestapol. Bluegrass & Country. DVD. Duration 62 minutes. Published by Grossman's Guitar Workshop (MB.13058DVD).
Tony Rice has practiced his flatpicked art to great acclaim in both traditional bluegrass and innovative acoustic circle. The bluegrass sound is practically mother's milk to Tony. His father was a "serious amateur on mandolin and guitar" and Tony cannot even recall a time when he didn't know how to play. This DVD presents Tony in three different settings recorded at the 1992 Merle Watson Festival playing a wide variety of music all stamped with his personal style and sound. Tony once remarked in a Country Guitar interview, "Others have said about me from time to time that I have a unique tone and balance on the instrument. I just kind of play it the way I hear it." And play it he does in this exciting one-hour collection. Running time: 62 minutes.
