It's been well over three decades since I started playing the guitar. From the outset, my creative point of departure has always been American folk, blues, and old-time country styles. This fascination with our musical roots has persisted throughout my career as a performing and recording artist, writer, and teacher. I've had occasion to playa lot of styles of music, from bluegrass to rockabiIly to contemporary folk ... bar-walkin' R&Bwith sax legend Clifford Scott to Chicago blues with Buddy Guy and full-on rock 'n' roll with Bo Diddley. It always seemed that, no matter what the style, the basic musical vocabulary always came straight from the roots.

I've been a contributing editor to Acoustic Guitar magazine since the publication started in 1990, and, in recent years, I've also served as an instructor/performer at several guitar festivals that the magazine has sponsored in the San Francisco Bay area Whether writing an article or teaching a guitar clinic, my approach to presenting this material encompasses technique, repertoire, and history, along with anecdotes and lore concerning the music and musicians. Roots and Blues Fingerstyle Guitar takes a similar approach, incorporating all these elements into one book and CD.

A large part of this text is an instruction manual for the beginning- and intermediate-level fingerstyle guitarist. Twenty-five tunes are transcribed in tablature and notation along with chord diagrams and explanatory notes. These include my own arrangements for blues, rags, and country themes along with excerpts from the recorded works of some roots guitar pioneers. Specific techniques are pointed out as they occur in the music. The accompanying CDcontains recorded examples from the songs as they are transcribed, played slowly and up to tempo with reference pitches for retuning where needed. Although the material is not necessarily sequenced in order of difficulty, starting with the first chapter and playing through the basics is suggested regardless of experience level.

The balance of the book is history, homily, and hooraw in various combinations. Members of my audiences often tell me that the stories about this music and the many remarkable people and circumstances that have contributed to its development over the years make the songs more real to them. Likewise, students seem more motivated to learn and practice when they feel like the tunes are old friends (which they are). This is good, because learning to play this style is largely a function of dogged, repetitive reptile-brain, your-dinner's-getting-cold practice. The good old southern American big-thumb guitar method is originally a rural art, so it doesn't take a socio-ethnologist to figure out that the early practitioners were farmers like Mance Lipscomb and Sam McGee. Pitching hay or plowing with a mule isn't as easy on the mitts as a pre-recital warm-up; but what they lacked in interdigital articulation, the inventors of twang made up in pure squeeze powerNwhich came in handy at barn dances and country suppers where the first set was three hours long. Times have changed, but the musical work ethic persists. The express train and church bells sound of "Buckdancer's Choice" or the sledgehammer Delta crunch of "Roll and Tumble" doesn't cascade from the box with the first love pat. One way I've found to keep things jolly while working on the cusp of carpal tunnel syndrome is to recall a few of the things I've heard or experienced over the years while passing up hot meals and paychecks to verify drawled rumors about primal string noise to be heard at the fourth house after the pavement stops. So these pages include excerpts from the well-thumbed old travel guide that leads to this music. When their honky-tonk and rock 'n' roll progeny came down the road with the first electric line, some of these tunes were already rocking on the porch saying: "What took you so long?"
