Thread Name: Nic Jones Guitar Technique
Subject: RE: Nic Jones Guitar Technique
Stanron - I've always thought there was a distinct link between Nic's playing style and John Martyn's. The period in which Nic was at his most active was one of experimentation amongst players, and I'm pretty sure they fed off each other at the same time as developing their own styles.

When I listen to Nic, I don't think 'banjo', but I do think 'John Martyn'.

Now if anyone wants to listen to a banjo-influenced guitar-style, try Molly Tuttle, flat-picker and guitar-frailer extraordinaire!
