A Very Nice Record

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Muriel Anderson is a truly accomplished player. She is one of only two people ever to win the Winfield Fingerpicking Championship playing nylon string guitar. She is a respected teacher (I think at Belmont College in Nashville) and the boss of those Murial Anderson All-Star Guitar Nights that attract all the best pickers around. I think she is unique because she plays in a style where you usually hear a steel string guitar. It is not unfair to compare her to Chet Atkins. My favorite is "It Never Gets Easier," but she plays the fast stuff as well as the melancholy."
An underrated master of the guitar.

"Yes, It is appropriate to compare Murial to Chet Atkins, who was one of her teachers, as was classical teenage-prodigy Christopher Parkening. Murial Anderson is still the only woman ever to win the (Winfield) National fingerpicking championship, and is a huge supporter of music in the schools with her own foundation.

Perhaps you've never heard her before, or you're trying to get into guitar playing a little bit and aren't sure who you should begin your listening library with--Murial Anderson is a wonderful place to start your guitar music collection because she is a master of so many styles. This is top-notch playing, but it is also exquisitely beautiful guitar music. You could not go wrong with any of her discs, but so far Hometown Live is my favorite."
