A collection of 15 intermediate level thumbstyle blues guitar solos in the style developed and played by some of the coal miners of Muhlenberg County, Kentucky and surrounding areas in the early to mid-20th century. Jim Mason and Amos Johnson were two of the early players. The style was picked up and streamlined by Mose Rager and Ike Everly and was the forerunner of the Travis Style. This style can be heard on Merle Travis' blues recordings. The music is presented in notation and tablature with chord symbols. The performance / demonstration recording is excellent for listening. It contains all 15 tunes with rhythm guitar accompaniment. Audio download available online.
