  • March 13, 2009 good fun

    Excellent teaching. Gives background on Jimmie and the recordings, and fun techniques for introductions and colorful runs. The yodels are wonderfully musical and I find myself playing them over and over again--O del ay ee ay lay ee oh lay ee.

  • February 26, 2009 Timeless Stuff

    This book is everything it promises to be with a great insight into Jimmie Rodger's music and playing style. I bought the book knowing that one of his best songs ("Waiting For A Train"), would not be in it, and if it were, I'd easily have rated this...

    book with 5 stars instead of 4. "T for Texas" is nicely done, but they omit Jimmie's little G chord fill, and some of his bass runs. You can pick these up by watching Jimmie Rodger's video on Youtube though. If you like this "old timey" stuff, then this book is for you. The original Jimmie Rodgers was and is a great influence on modern music, and this stuff is just a blast to play and to listen to.

  • December 02, 2007 I love the man, and this delivers!

    This is a must have for anyone who's into Jimmie Rodgers style of playing. It's so well put together and shows you some of his catchy little tricks. As in 'The Carter Family Collection' this book is a mine of information about the songs and the man himself...

    . Go get yourself a Martin!!!
