Thanks to clawbanjo2 (all the way from Sweden) for a group of excellent notes, there is an updated version of the Doc Watson Banj-ography. For the most recent version of the Banj-ography you can grab it directly from the Google doc: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Aki33whN-whAdFhIWHZOMjdLa0JOVTQtUWZTVUFIQWc#gid=1 -- or find a PDF version in the last post in the discussion thread -- http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/259247/2
You can find almost everything on the list between Amazon.com mp3, Smithsonian Folkways and Itunes for the Out in the Country track -- in fact I'm sitting here now listening to the self-compiled Doc Watson banjo album -- nice way to start the morning. The list also contains tunings, which come from a variety of sources and I haven't had a chance to confirm. I plan to start working my way through the list and will continue to update.
I am also trying to get a feel for two-finger style which Doc uses in his playing. It is tough going at the moment, but I'll get there over time.
