Music Friday: “Are You From Dixie?” by Scotty Anderson

Being a pianist, this many not mean too much—but Scotty Anderson is one of the most amazing guitarists I’ve heard.  From what a friend of mine told me, he just walks into a studio and just asks for fresh strings and snaps these kid of arrangements off without a warm-up. 

If you want an idea of how the original goes, I’ve included two other renditions on a previous blog post (one by Grandpa Jones from 1957; the other with Jerry Reed, Tom Jones, and Glen Campbell from what looks to be the mid-1970’s).  By watching those, you’ll appreciate what Scotty Anderson does.
