2-DVD set. Hawkins teaches nine of Davis's best known blues arrangements. These songs have become well known through the playing of Bob Dylan (Baby, Let Me Lay It On You), Jackson Browne (Cocaine Blues), Hot Tuna (Hesitation Blues) John Renbourn, Stefan Grossman, Ramblin Jack Elliott and a host of other musicians. Davis approached playing the blues in several different styles. Each had unique characteristics and ranged from what he called "old fashion picking" to complex playing that explored and extended the blues tradition on the fingerboard. Each arrangement is broken down phrase by phrase and then played slowly on a split screen. As a bonus it includes various audio performances of Rev. Davis playing each song. Volume One: "Spoonful," "Cocaine Blues," "Delia," "Baby Let Me Lay It On You" and "Candyman." Volume Two: "Hesitation Blues," "Penitentiary Blues," "Florida Blues" and "Can't Be Satisfied." Tab booklet included as a PDF file. 176 min.
