Print edition. This book contains 250 anecdotes about music, including this one: Woody Guthrie taught fellow folksinger Pete Seeger the art of busking-getting money for playing music in a bar. Here is what you do: Go into a bar with your guitar strapped ostentatiously on your back. Buy a beer for a nickel and sip it slowly. Soon, someone will ask about the guitar, "Can you play that thing?" Say, not too eagerly, "Maybe, a little." A little later, someone will say, "Kid, I've got a quarter for you if you pick us a tune." "Then," Mr. Guthrie would conclude, "you play your best song." Mr. Seeger did a lot of busking during his traveling days.
