Sparklers: “Doc’s Guitar” by Doc Watson

This is the second installment of my newest category here at sixstr stories.

It features recordings of outstanding performances by noteworthy guitarists – or outstanding guitarists giving noteworthy performances –  for your listening pleasure.

It is inspired by whatever god oversees the shuffle mode of my iPod classic during my morning walks.

So, ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you..

“Doc’s Guitar” by Doc Watson.

Listen and enjoy.


This is the original recording of this dazzling instrumental as it appeared on Doc’s first album – Doc Watson – released in 1964 on Vanguard Records.

The Vanguard Years is a 4-CD, 64-track set released by Vanguard Records in 1995.

Arthel Lane “Doc” Watson was born on March 3, 1923 in Deep Gap, North Carolina. He passed away on May 29, 2012.

    Thanks for the introduction to this artist… I love his fast fingerpicking style… I just searched youtube for him and found a song called “Deep River Blues”…just great.
