Buster Jones

    In 1988, the late Buster Jones entered Guitar Player Magazine's International Guitar Competition with his own composition, "Back Porch Boogie," and a rendition of "Limehouse Blues." He entered on a whim at the last minute, using a K-Mart cassette tape and a boom box. There were almost 900 entries and he won on the first ballot!!

    In 1990, he won the National Fingerpicking Championship at Winfield, Kansas. In his all too short lifetime he performed with Chet Atkins, Tommy Jones, Marcel Dadi, Thom Bresh, and John Knowles. He was a regular at the annual conventions in Nashville and France of the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society. In France they dubbed Buster Jones "LE MACHINE GUN".

    "Buster Jones is an acoustic player, a fingerpicker, a country flavored soloist - and he's one of the finest players we've heard in years... His technique is only a means to an end. His true gifts are his melodic sense, innate musicianship, and brilliant improvisational powers. He can drive a tune with fluid rhythmic force or stroke it with sensuous, loving touch... He's a monster player with chops galore, great ideas and an encyclopedic reservoir of guitaristic influences."
--Guitar Player Magazine.

Buster Jones Plays "Buster B Boogie" Live

Buster Jones - Just Us - Book and Online Audio
Although his scorching fingerpicking was most impressive, a closer look at "Just Us" reveals that Buster is equally adept at what many musicians consider as a more difficult task: playing fewer notes... ones that mean more and say more with less, as he does on album opener "A Simple Gift", title cut "Just Us", and "One Sad Clown". Just Us is an album consisting largely of his own compositions inspired by his two main guitars "Merle" and "Pearl". Along the way we are treated to a barn-storming version of "Alabama Jubilee" (it must be tunes like this that caused Chet Atkins to say of Buster "He plays like he's double-parked"), "Collage-a-Reed" and "Clawin" (each inspired by mentor Jerry Reed), while "Let the Sun Shine In" sounds like an instant fingerpicking classic that you could swear you have heard before, but haven't! Songs include: "A Second Glance, A Simple Gift, Alabama Jubilee, Be Like Dad, Collage-A-Reed, Flight Path, Just Us, Last Request, Let the Sun Shine In, One Sad Clown, Pierpaolo, Still Live Five, The Thoughts of One, Thom's Thumb".
