From the Stacks: The Guitar Sounds of Buddy Merrill

Buddy Merrill is an interesting dude, a shit hot fifties era guitarist with absolutely no street cred.  And why is that,  you ask?  Great question.

Merrill was a regular performer on The Lawrence Welk Show, which was about as far from cool as you can get.  Seriously, you could walk around in a truss and sock garters and look cooler.

But the guy could play.  His tone was clean, his picking sharp, and he played some serious steel guitar, too.

The Guitar Sounds Of Buddy Merrill is the kind of gem that you can find at flea markets, yard sales, thrift stores, etc., for a quarter because people just don’t know what they’re passing up.  Well, now you do so got get ’em.  Happy hunting.
