This Historic Day In Music: Doc Watson

Doc Watson was born this day, March 2, in the year of 1923 in Deep Gap, North Carolina.

Doc is one of my most favorite guitarists, acoustic or electric, any style or genre.

The word that always comes to mind when I think of the sound of his guitar is: pure.

Here’s a very well done video/slide show that I found on YouTube set to Doc’s 1964 recording of “Sitting On Top Of The World” from his first album.

Doc Watson passed away on May 29, 2012 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
