Furry Lewis was a stand-out in the first generation of Country Blues guitarists to record. His combination of intricate fingerpicking, expert slide guitar-playing, innovative arrangements and clever original lyrics gave his music a staying power that continues to this day. Everything that Furry recorded communicated so much personality. The combination of that personality and his musical gifts paved the way for recognition in his later years that included an appearance on t...

The musical appeal of the Blues, as they began to be heard in the early twentieth century, was so infectious that musicians with open minds and ears were drawn to it as soon as they heard it. And that appeal crossed the racial and ethnic divides that characterized American society. So it was, that even before African American guitarists were recorded playing fingerstyle blues guitar, their white neighbors had already begun learning the music—listening to, watching, and imit...

Blind Lemon Jefferson was a trail blazer, both as a singer and guitarist, but also as a commercial phenomenon, for he was the first blues musician to establish the tremendous appeal that blues, as played and sung by rural African American folk, had for the record-buying public. It is no exaggeration to say that the sales of Lemon’s records paved the way for a host of other solo rural blues musicians to record in his wake and made the record companies more willing to give ot...

Perhaps more than any other state, Mississippi has long been linked with the blues, so much so that Alan Lomax referred to it as The Land Where the Blues Began. From the earliest days of recorded blues, and even before that, Mississippi has always abounded with great fingerstyle blues guitarists. So it was that Mississippi fingerstyle blues guitar was the obvious choice for author John Miller’s next book, following up on his earlier releases, East Coast Fingerstyle...

Virtually every country blues recording made prior to World War II that has been recovered by the collectors is commercially available. No one could have anticipated how much of the recorded legacy of country blues would become available to be heard. It really is a treasure trove of musical history, and in listening to the incredible breadth and variety in the country blues that this re-issuing movement has made possible, I stand in awe of the magnitude and scope of what th...

The blues have been a major focus of music in Texas, from the earliest days of commercial recordings right up to the present. And there has been an impressive lineage of great Texas fingerstyle blues guitarists, from Blind Lemon Jefferson, the first country blues recording star, to the impassioned singing and unearthly slide guitar of Blind Willie Johnson, on up to the genre-defining sound of Lightnin’ Hopkins and the late-in-life instrumental mastery of Mance Lipscomb. ...

When John Hurt was rediscovered in 1963, he was presented with a very rare opportunity to expand and re-write his musical legacy, late in life. And he did just that, recording over seventy songs previously unrecorded by him, adding to the repertoire of thirteen titles he had recorded in 1928. In The Guitar of Mississippi John Hurt - The Rediscovery Years, John Miller focuses on performances that John Hurt recorded in between 1963 and his death in 1966, presenting t...

Beginning to build a repertoire of songs that you can play comfortably is the first important step in getting started in the Country Blues. But once you've got that repertoire-building process started, it can be enormously helpful to become acquainted with the Blues in a more general, less song-specific way, learning the various stylistic pathways that enable experienced blues players who have never met or played together before to sit down and make music together. When you see that happen, it seems like...

The use of open tunings on the guitar to accompany singing is one of the hallmark sounds of the Country Blues. Unquestionably, the two open tunings that have been used most commonly in the Country Blues have been Spanish tuning, often called Open G tuning and Vestapol tuning, quite often called Open D tuning. For this 2-DVD lesson, we've chosen the names Spanish and Vestapol to designate these tunings, because in practice, Spanish tuning was not always tuned exactly to an open G chord and Vestapol tuning...

The Country Blues guitar duet tradition is rich and varied, but it has been relatively unexplored by present day blues players. This is a shame for a couple of reasons - there are a lot of great duets that merit being worked out and played for today's audiences, preserving the music, but there's also just the sheer enjoyment and fun involved in playing this music with a kindred spirit, someone who hears and responds to this music as you do yourself.In Legendary Country Blues Duets, Frank and John ...

As the Country Blues began to be recorded, in the mid-1920s, it soon became apparent that the music was being played and appreciated not only by African-American musicians and audiences, but by white musicians and audiences as well. Many of these white musicians played with and learned from black musicians, for even in the Jim Crow Era there was always a good deal of musical interaction and exchange. So it is that the term Hillbilly Blues can be used to describe the music made by white musicians of that ...
