Book/CD set. Rev. Gary Davis is the real thing. He is an icon of the style of guitar he was born into, known today as the Piedmont blues. Davis (1896-1972) was born black in deep poverty in South Carolina, blind from an early age. He overcame these longest of odds to become world famous, a giant of American music. He brought together black and white styles, country gospel, folk themes, blues, jazz, ragtime, minstrel songs, dance tunes and popular song. He developed his own brilliant fingerpicking style that was deep, economical, and adaptable enough to easily cover all these genres. Transcriptions of 18 of his best known gospel arrangements. Intermediate/advanced.   More Details...
