This book presents three of the greatest ragtime blues guitar players from the 1920s-1940s. They all possessed what Rev. Gary Davis called that sportin’ right hand. Each could sing the blues or play a dance instrumental. They favored first-position chords but produced incredible textures and rhythms from these easy left-hand fingerings. There are years of exciting fingerpicking challenges in these pages. But what fun it will be once you can play these tunes!
