Blind Willie McTell, a legendary musical genius, recorded from 1927, when he established his reputation with the transcendent Statesboro Blues, all the way into the 1950's. McTell is known for his unique, swift, clean finger picking style on his old Stella 12-string guitar. This was perfectly suited for his blues, rags and haunting vocals. He was also a master slide player, able to melt hearts with both blues and gospel gems. He was particularly expert as seamlessly combining a solid moving bass melodic style with spontaneous shimmering runs. In this video lesson Ernie Hawkins teaches six of Blind Willie's greatest songs. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. NTSC all region, 92 minutes.
