Primal Twang: The Legacy of the Guitar
DVD | DCPT-001 | $18.99

The story of the guitar told through a combination of onstage narration, video projections of rare historical footage, and electrifying live performances by an all-star ensemble of international guitar greats.
The first definitive theatrical journey through the guitar’s colorful and surprisingly controversial 3500-year history, told through a combination of onstage narration, video projections of rare historical footage and electrifying live performances by world music legend, Dan Crary and an all-star ensemble of international guitar greats including Grammy Award winners Eric Johnson, Albert Lee, Doc Watson, Mason Williams ("Classical Gas"), Andrew York (Los Angeles Guitar Quartet),) as well as Richard Watson, harp-guitarists John Doan and Beppe Gambetta, Brazilian jazz master Peter Sprague, and Grand Old Opry star Doyle Dykes. The program debuted to enthusiastic sold-out audiences at the lavishly renovated, palatial Birch North Park Theatre.
     Primal Twang begins with the guitar’s ancient ancestors and covers not only the wildly eclectic forms of music played throughout the centuries on variants of the steel-string, nylon-string, and electric guitar, but also the sociological impact the guitar has had in every era. Dan and the seven-piece band perform everything from ancient modal music to classical, flamenco, and the Chet Atkins school, and from the guitar-based vocal pop of the early 20th Century through the jazz, folk, and rock eras, right up to today. At key points in the show, featured guest artists join the band, and the viewer gets to see and hear some of the best guitarists in the world as the "instrument of the gods" emerges from antiquity, gathers steam over centuries, and explodes in our own time to become the "universal" musical instrument.
     Crary, a world-traveler, raconteur, and former communications professor, starred as the singer/narrator, accompanied by a stellar stage ensemble including music director and multi-instrumental, Dennis Caplinger (HBO’s Deadwood), drummer Duncan Moore, classical/flamenco guitarists Fred Benedetti and George Svoboda (who performed with rising flamenco dance star Lakshmi Basile), gypsy-jazz guitarist Raul Reynoso, bassist Jeff Pekarek, and pop-rock guitarist/vocalist Jon Walmsley ("Jason" on the TV series, The Waltons, and now an in-demand session player in Los Angeles).

 I bought BILLY IN THE LOW GROUND Thunderation DVD at a Taylor Guitars Workshop with Dan Crary . . . . I have loved learning to play it. As one who is comfortable reading tablature, I then purchased the Flatpickers Guide. I really appreciate the CD that is with that. The Thunderation DVD is good in that while I was learning the song I played it a lot of times. And I really KNOW that song now! Deep thanks for all the work that has gone into these DVDs.
P. Dunn, Maine

 You're a teacher, Dan, so I'm going to tell you something youprobably already know: the simple approach, the one that yields results best and fastest with the least amount of effort, is usually the approach that gets overlooked. You didn't overlook it. You cultivated it on the Soldier's Joy DVD, and I've finally got a tune down well.
     I've struggled with learning tab arrangements for years. I believe your simple approach--getting the melody bit by bit in your head (and heart)--is the one that works. You know, it worked for centuries, for people who couldn't read. Thanks, Dan!

The Dan Crary Capo for the steel-string guitar!
  • Solid brass
  • Fine-tune adjustable
  • Holds tight with less tension
  • Distorts tuning less
  • Avoids capo-pressure neck damage
  • Looks, feels, and works like serious pro equipment

You may or may not remember me, but I used to own Juniper Studios in Burbank where at least three of your albums were recorded. Jimmy Emrich was my (and your) engineer at the time.
     Well I just thought I'd send you a note regarding your capo. I heard you talking about it on XM radio a few weeks ago and, you were right, it's obscenely expensive. But worth every damn nickel.
     I've spent - well - a LOT of money on capos over the last 35 years, looking for the right one. Yours is not only the right one, it is now the only one. It does exactly what you say it'll do. So I'm figuring that it's really a bargain! You just saved me a bundle over the next 20 or 30 years. (This is very close to the narrative I gave my wife, by the way, when she looked at the MasterCard bill. But it's 100% true.) So I thank you and my wife thanks you.
     And thanks for all the wonderful music. You are a true inspiration.
— David Bolger
Dan certainly does remember David, and really appreciates his permission to use his kind comments on both the capo and the music.
