  • April 22, 2009 sound the same

    It's probably my lack of ability, but the songs all sound much the same. If you can play the Ma Carter pluck and scratch, you will have fun. I had more success with the "Jimmy Rodgers Collection."

  • December 02, 2007 A Treasure Trove!

    A wonderful book with easy to follow but quite rich tabs. Full of many of the Carter's favourites and also a little mine of relevant information concerning each of the songs. A joy to have.

  • May 02, 2007 Wild Wood Flower

    I remember Wild Wood Flower, my first guitar - a Gibson – and practicing the song for my music teacher. The song afforded harmony in my youth, and memories as an adult. My older brother asked me if I still played Wild Wood Flower on my guitar, and my response was no...

    . I have been playing classical guitar for the past 15 years, neglecting my past as a country boy, and my roots of our Colorado ranch land. I tuned my guitar as instructed in The Carter Family: The Carter Family Collection, drawn back into my youth, and enjoyed playing the music. The music book is great fun.
