Mississippi John Hurt

DVD - Guitar of Mississippi John Hurt, Vol. 1

taught by John Miller
sku: 304-DVD817
Mississippi John Hurt's appeal was universal - he was very much a musician of his time and place, playing within a tradition, but mapping out his own territory. Though famed for fingerpicking in the alternating bass style, he would often employ omitted beats or syncopated runs. Also, unlike many musicians of his region, he was comfortable in a variety of keys, routinely working in E, A, D, G, and C in standard tuning, as well as Open D and Open G tunings. These songs were chosen to showcase his playing in different keys. With rare silent film footage of Hurt playing guitar at his home in Washington. Note/tab booklet with lyrics included as a PDF file. 90 min.   More Details...
