Pete Seeger - 12-string guitar, whistling
I learned it from my sister forty years ago in 1956. She got it out of a
book by Lydia Parish called "Songs of the Georgia Sea Islands".
I was fooling around on the guitar in the D tuning (6th string down one
whole tone). I started with another song, "Pay Me My Money Down",
and gradually improvised a new tune off of it. I may never compose a better
piece of guitar music (I'd like to but I probably won't.)
"Music in some strange, mystical way brings people together,
in spite of our problems. I have the feeling that music is going to be able
to do something that prose and pictures haven't been able to do."
