McGuinn's fantastic guitar work epitomizes the American sound of that era.

Enjoy this flight of the a Byrd:

2. Roger in 1962.

Backing up the original Chad Mitchell Trio. Before John Denver replaced Mitchell.




Don't forget, John Lennon played a 12-string Rick too!!



George too:

3. "Live from Mars" is a great CD.

By Roger. He explains how he got into the electric 12 string sound, plays all his hits including "You Showed Me".
