Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
John Hartford is warmly remembered for his many appearances on the 1960s Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour and who has since appeared on the Grand Ole Opry, Hee Haw, Nashville Now, and David Letterman's late-night talk show. He teaches viewers how to get good tone and effectively use hammers and pulls on this instructional video. He also demonstrates a variety of rolls, licks, triplets, and "ghost" notes. To help explain many of these techniques, he plays such songs as "Cripple Creek," "Cumberland Gap," and "Gentle on My Mind."
