Hi everyone! I am new to the iMayberry community, so I apologize if this topic has already been discussed before. If not, I thought it would be interesting to talk or post pictures from TAGS episodes about the "music in Mayberry": musicians/bands that were featured, songs that were sung, instruments that were played, etc.
I like how Barney does Santa Maria solo. He gets that mouth open like nobody else could.
Next thing you know he'll be singing "The Star Spangled Banner" at the National Insecticide Convention just like Leonard Blush!
Ernest T tuned and played an oil can while singing "Eatin Goober Peas"
That was "Old Aunt Mariah". What a classic!
Charlene rebuffed his offer to sing "Eatin' Goober Peas". (Kinda wish we coulda heard that one though!)
In "Mayberry on Record" we see Clarence White playing the guitar in Floyd's Barber Shop. One of the all time gifted guitar pickers ever. He, with the assistance of couple other pickers, modified his Fender Telecaster to create unique sounds. He also went on the be a member of the 60's group "The Byrds". You can now see that Tele being played my Marty Stewart. It also has its own website.
All these years both as a TAGS nut and Byrds fan and I never realized that was Clarence White (with his brother Roland on mandolin)!
Looks like the whole group with Andy is the Kentucky Colonels! It never once crossed my mind!
Cool story Marty Stuart tells about how he acquired the very first Fender B-Bender!
My favorite songs from TAGS....
A. Down In The Valley, by Andy and Peggy
2. Dooley, by the Darlings
Bernie, I have to agree. Peg does a fine job on that song.
