Sandy Rothman - Bluegrass Guitar Duets album download
Not every guitarist is brave enough to follow in the footsteps of Clarence White, but there are exceptions. Sandy Rothman and Steve Pottier, both fine guitarists in their own right, decided to team up for 16 instrumentals on Bluegrass Guitar Duets. Many of these tunes, like "Weeping Willow" and "Black Mountain Rag," will be familiar, but even the oldest warhorses are given fresh workouts here. In the Pines" has a lovely bluesy quality, while "Blue Guitar Yodel" pays homage to the late great Jimmie Rodgers.
Backup work is as tasteful as the inventive leads are, and the two clearly respect the music and each other's contributions to this inventive collection. The playing is as fresh today as it was on the 1991 recording date. Interestingly, Vern Williams version can be found on the on the album "Hand-Picked: 25 years of Rounder Bluegrass" under the tiltle "When Springtime Comes Again". Although this is not a learning or practice tape, I highly recommend this album as fun way to learn new tunes and licks. There are no vocals- this recording is strictly instrumental. The styles range from fiddle tunes to gospel, Jimmy Rodgers to the aforementioned Stephen Foster, bluesy to folksy- but all picked with taste and variety.
