The fiddle tune ‘Colored Aristocracy’, with a Professor Longhair bass line, is, according to Duck Baker, “considered a classic in picking circles”. My version of Pete Seeger’s ‘Living in The Country’ is pla ...more

“The music presented here is a collection of material from my first three recordings that has stood out among my guitar students as some of their favorite pieces to learn and play. I use a variety of tunings in this presentation: Open D, Drop D, G6 and standard.

The fiddle tune ‘Colored Aristocracy’, with a Professor Longhair bass line, is, according to Duck Baker, “considered a classic in picking circles”. My version of Pete Seeger’s ‘Living in The Country’ is played in a calypso-style, which I recorded with steel drums after learning of Seeger’s important, but little-known advancement of Trinidadian steel drums in American music. Henry Clay Work’s ‘Marching Through Georgia’ is an infectious Civil War standard played in open D with some contemporary harmonic twists. The traditional fiddle dance tune, ‘The Eighth of January’, also known as ‘The Battle of New Orleans’, is transformed in my version into a slow and somber ballad. Finally, I have included an old composition from the Italian violin virtuoso Aristeo Carpi called simply ‘Valzer’ (waltz).

My hope is that these pieces are challenging and enjoyable to play, and that the variety of concepts presented here will inspire you in your own playing.” - Eric Lugosch

Titles include: Colored Aristocracy, Living in The Country, Marching Through Georgia, The Eighth of January
