Pete Seeger died last night, while I and several friends played songs together all night, in a hotel conference room and lounge, not knowing the lion of American folksingers had gone silent.
But then again, he may have passed on, but his music will reverberate down the ages, in step with the muse that was waiting for ol’ Pete the day he was born
Today, I played the Pete Seeger signature model, based on the guitar he is playing in this video. His old guitar was made by a luthier in England in the 1960s. The new one is made by C.F. Martin and Company. A baritone 12-string with sonorous trebles and lows that wallow deep as the Big Muddy.
