Legacy of Country Fingerstyle Guitar Volume 1



Born Bradley F. Jones in Ames, Iowa, he first became known after entering Guitar Player Magazine's International Reader's Soundpage Competition in 1988 on a whim. He submitted an original composition, titled Back Porch Boogie, as well as a cover of Salty Dog Blues, recorded using a reel-to-reel recorder and then transferred to cassette using a boombox. Jones came in first place out of nearly 900 entries.  He went on to win the National Fingerpicking Championship at Winfield, Kansas in 1990.

In 1995, Jones became a spokesman for Godin guitars,[3] playing a custom instrument he named "Pearl" for the mother of pearl inlay of his name on the neck. He toured often, earning the nicknames "Le Machine Gun" and "Pistola" for his fast playing style. That same style earned the notice of Chet Atkins, who described Buster by saying; "Buster B. Jones is the best fingerpicker I've heard since Jerry Reed... He plays like he's double parked."

    "Even if you stripped out the instructional aspects of his videos, they'd still be a mind blower. Buster B. Jones is, plain and simple, amazing." - Dirty Linen

    The legacy that Merle Travis, Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed have had on Country Fingerstyle Guitar has influenced generations of guitarists. They have left an impressive body of work encompassing various styles, techniques and arrangements. In this unique video lesson, Buster B. Jones presents tunes from the repertoires of all three of these giant musicians. Buster also explores the differences in how each of these giants might have approached arranging and playing a tune.
