live & grow.

wonderfully gifted & individualistic players survive with this
anthology for everyone to enjoy & continue to
inspire younger players
& touch the hearts of all lovers of slack key.

with extensive historical liner notes & tuning guidelines.
And of course we have done extensive computer audio
