This guitar technique is sometimes called Chicken picking and the masters of the art have names like Chet Atkins or Merle Travis. Carmine plays some of their tunes but add a few others songs not always related to American culture. Everything is played on the guitare, there's just minimal drums, enough to highlight the delicate playing of Carmine. The best is to watch the videos to understand better. Select the videos you want to see and let the magic do its job...
Carmine now plays with Dominique Dupré on percussions, and that band is called Romantic Journey. You can discover this wonderful musician on his page here.
And now you can listen to a new album of Carmine and his guitars with studio musicians, Cowpoke.
