(Guitar). Explore how the traditional parlor style guitar backups used during the golden age of the Old Time Music string band performance style were further developed by guitarists during the Depression years of the 1930s. The genesis of those developments lies principally in the techniques popularized by the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers on their recordings that featured the use of the flat pick instead of a thumb pick, use of left hand embellishments including adjacent string drone usage, development of "hot licks" based on chromatic passing note sequences and syncopations, and the popularity of licks played on the higher pitched tenor guitar.

Q&A with Author Bob Taylor
Author Bob Taylor
What inspired you to write this book? The opportunity was presented to me, and the time just seemed right. Sometimes, I think, if you do these things too early, itâs a waste of time. In our case, it seems as if everything is right for people to want to read the book.
How would you describe Guitar Lessons to someone who has little knowledge of Taylor? Itâs a book of business lessons learned through experience and told in story form. Itâs the story of starting a business as a teenager based on a craft I fell in love with, and really, how it turned into a major business by bringing great people in with me and persevering through the years.
Is there content in the book that will surprise existing Taylor Guitars owners? I think people familiar with the company will see it as a more in-depth and candid story than what they are going to read in a blog, article, or company profile. In a book format, thereâs enough time to go into depth. There are lots of Taylor guitar owners. Weâve sold a million guitars, and 750,000 of those have only recently joined our customer base in the last six or seven years. This will give them a better insight into our story and where we came from.
What lessons do you want readers to leave with? The main lessons are that it takes perseverance and the ability to knock down obstacles as you go. Thereâs no singular thing that acts as a turning point in a business and gets you to finally âmake it.â There may be 25 things that you need to solve for your business to be successful. Maybe you have to get to where eight or nine are solved just to stay in business, and then you go from there. But you must continue to own something, whether it means learning how to do production, marketing your products, or taking care of employees. You can run a car with six pistons, but it takes all eight pistons to fire for the car to really run great.
