All sorts of things that have only a peripheral, if any, relationship to wine.

Wine Rambler Music Hour: Doc Watson

Thought it'd be nice to have some music here from time to time, to go with all that wine.

And it's my great honour to have a real legend of american music open this segment: This charming little video captures the great folk musician Doc Watson in a guitar maker's workshop, obviously trying out a new instrument.

"Telling my troubles to my old guitar" is just a harmlessly swinging Chet Atkins tune. But in Doc's off-the-cuff-version, this becomes a little marvel of thumping guitar strings and stoic perfection.

And I dare say my co-rambler Torsten will enjoy the little hint of a yodel at the end.
