Many southern blues musicians performed gospel songs. Some strictly adhered to a religious message, earning them the handle "guitar evangelists," while others blurred the socially imposed lines and mingled gospel with the blues. Tom highlights the fervent and aggressive slide playing of Fred McDowell, Robert Wilkins, Muddy Waters, Bukka White, Blind Willie Johnson, Edward W. Clayborn and Charlie Patton. Each offers a distinct style and Tom breaks down their techniques, allowing you to imitate the masters as well as build a repertoire of classic bottleneck gospel blues. Tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file. The original old recordings of all the tunes are included. Intermediate. 104 min.
