Even near-beginners will be able to learn these pieces, while more experienced guitarists will enjoy the nuances and subtleties of Maybelle's influential style. Mike is joined by Janette Carter, who offers reminiscences of the family, demonstrates her aunt's guitar playing, and sings on most of the songs.
