During the fifteen years that Merle Watson toured and recorded with his father, Doc Watson, the duo was one of the most popular and beloved musical teams in folk music history. On these two CDs, Merle teaches the traditional fingerpicking, flatpicking and slide guitar styles for which he was famous. Doc joins Merle in a dynamic demonstration of “twin guitars” as they take apart some of their most requested duets and explain, in detail, how each part is played.
