Sol Hoopii’s 1938 recording of “12th Street Rag” is one of his most envied performances. It is a tour-de-force, combining technical mastery and humor in a 2 1/2 minute non-stop workout. This is Sol’s electric version for 6 string C#mi7 tuning Hawaiian guitar. Mike Neer has transcribed this performance note-for-note in the manner in which Sol played it. The clean and easy to read tab/notation, along with a 16-minute demonstration video, will have you ready to play this one in no time….(well, give or take a few weeks).
