Buster B. Jones is a hot-rod fingerpicker whose main influences are Merle Travis, Jerry Reed, Chet Atkins and Thom Bresh. On this live session, Buster handles some wild and woolly guitar instrumentals that will have aspiring pickers shaking their heads in amazement! Playing his Godin nylon string electric guitar and his acoustic Drednaught, the Virginia native conducts a fascinating demonstration of the fingerpicking guitar styles of his heroes. (At one point he plays in the styles of Travis, Atkins and Reed – all in one song!) Using the built-in synthesizer on his Godin, he runs through an amazing array of sounds – whistles, girl singers, banjo, trumpet, etc. – each with an appropriate musical piece.
Buster’s set has the informal feel of a back-porch session, providing an hour of entertaining conversation and dynamic guitar picking. Songs include Buster B. Boogie, Live At Five, Linus And Lucy, Jus D’Orange, Fingers In Flight, Wild Turkey, Funky Fingers and two hot and heavy duets with his mentor and friend, Thom Bresh.
