Fingerstyle delta blues of the 1920's and 1930's was mostly male-dominated, but there were a number of women who emerged early on. The best known and most influential was Memphis Minnie, who recorded over 200 songs. Erin Harpe takes you through some of Memphis Minnie's early material in Open G (Spanish tuning) as well as a few in standard tuning. Erin also gives an overview of Geeshie Wiley, Elvie Thomas, and Jesse Mae Hemphill. Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and played slowly on a split-screen. Bonus audio tracks of the original recordings included. Note/tab included as PDF file. Intermediate. 124 min.   More Details...
