Carter Style

A style of guitar play popularized by Maybelle Carter in the 1920s, this involves picking out the melody to a song on the bass strings, and keeping the rhytmn going on the treble strings. It is a very useful way of keeping the song going in bands (or solo acts) without drummers or bass players.
