Episode #6- Great Guitar Records: Double Necks, Long Tall Women, Shuffles and Rags

is episode of the Old, Dingy Jukebox features some of my favorite guitar records from some of my favorite guitar players. It was pretty hard to narrow it down into one show, but I figured I’d just go for it. Who knows, maybe I’ll do a second show later on down the road. The guitar records and artists I chose for the show cover a lot of different styles and genres, which is sort of what the show is all about. Hopefully it will make for an enjoyable episode for the guitarist, guitar aficionado as well as the casual, every day listener. As usual, I’ve provided a discography of the records I pulled from for the show in order for you to pursue the artists more fully on your own if you are so inclined. Enjoy.
