AllMusic Review by

The Jasmine compilation Flying Fingers, Vol. 1: The Best of Country Guitar does a fair job of introducing several of the best-known country boogie electric guitarists of the 20th century. The 22 tracks include up-tempo cuts by Les Paul ("Steel Guitar Rag") Speedy West and Jimmy Bryant ("Hub Cap Roll") Chet Atkins ("Main Street Breakdown") and three tracks by one the most influential guitarist of the genre: Merle Travis. This is a quality first purchase compilation for anyone interested in country boogie.
