Many of you will be familiar with famous guitarist Jack Rose who passed away at the end of 2009. In the same year he collaborated his long-time pals The Black Twigs for what sounded like one hell of a party. According to liner notes Rose’s use of a thumbpick originates from years of duets with Twig Mike Gangloff, struggling to make his guitar heard over Gangloff’s crashing banjo! If you haven’t checked the album you should.
The Black Twig Pickers got together on Valentines day last year to record a fitting tribute to the man which you can listen to and download below:
