Some call it country guitar with a dash of rock, blues and jazz. Others call it modern Nashville-style guitar. We call it Big Twang and no one’s better qualified to help you get a grip on the style than our very own bona fide master twanger, Joe Dalton. Derived in part from "country" guitar, twang is really a modern hybrid of blues, country, rock and jazz guitar. Players like Albert Lee, Arlen Roth, Danny Gatton, Johnny Hiland, Ray Flacke, Leon McAuliffe, Brent Mason, Chet Atkins, Scotty Anderson, Red Volkaert, James Burton and Jimmy Bryant all have their own classic Big Twang signature sound and technique. But today, contemporary players across all styles have incorporated twang influences in their signature sounds.
