Roy Clark Shows Off Guitar Skills with “Twelfth Street Rag” Cover

0  comments

Popularly known for his speedy lightning fingers, country singer and musician Roy Clark once again showed off his guitar prowess as he takes on another country classic. An extremely skilled guitar and banjo player, Clark also had a talent in comedy. This explains why you might probably recognize him as one of the hosts at the Hee Haw Show. Additionally, he served as a guest host for Johnny Carson on his The Tonight Show not only once but many times. While he was a gifted comedian, he shone at his best as a guitar player.

In one of the episodes of The Jimmy Dean Show, Clark treated the audience with his superb version of a classic ragtime musical, “Twelfth Street Rag,” on his electric guitar.

Blending his guitar prowess and talent in comedy, Clark could not hide his inner comedian as he took it upon himself with his performance. He did a little tap dance leaving the audience into a fit of applause and laughter.

Going back to his performance, “Twelfth Street Rag” is actually an extremely fast and difficult song to play. As a matter of fact, only a few skilled musicians can execute it as perfectly as Clark did. During the really fast-paced and intricate parts of the music, the crowd gave Clark his much-deserved applause.
