Carter Family 90th Anniversary

Tomorrow, Aug. 1, is the 90th anniversary of the Carter Family's first recording session, what Johnny Cash called "The Big Bang of country music". I learned to play guitar in the style that Maybelle Carter pioneered, not knowing in my youth the source of that alternating bass pattern I loved. I grew up listening to Johnny Cash and was imitating his style, later learning he was Maybelle's son-in-law. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carter_Family.
