Review

Guitar legend Merle Travis—the man who wrote Tennessee Ernie Ford's 1955 smash "Sixteen Tons"—was a fretboard master dubbed "the most original guitarist ever" by his peers. Strictly Guitar finds Travis re-visiting classics of the '20s and '30s—the stuff he cut his teeth on—in a purely instrumental set that will intrigue and enlighten anyone searching for the headwaters of Country & Western music.
