Product Details


The Early Masters of American Blues series provides the unique opportunity to study the true roots of modern blues. Stefan Grossman, noted roots-blues guitarist and musicologist, has compiled this fascinating collection of 13 songs, transcribed exactly as performed by legendary blues master Rev. Gary Davis. In addition to Stefan's expert transcriptions, the book includes online audio containing the original recordings of Rev. Gary Davis so you can hear the music as he performed it.

Reverend Gary Davis, also known as Blind Gary Davis, was a master musician who felt comfortable playing in a wide variety of styles and techniques. He could freely improvise on ragtime, religious and blues themes, and was an exciting and vibrant performer. An ordained minister, Rev. Davis often expressed a preference for gospel music, sometimes refusing to play the blues. In addition to transcribing all the songs in this collection, Stefan Grossman was also a student of Rev. Davis.
