Unusual guitar II

Here`s Furry Lewis playing when I lay my burden Down.

I previously wrote about unusual guitar practices and sometimes you`ve gotta have an unusual name just to back yourself up….Furry Lewis, Clarence Gatemouth Brown, Blind Lemon, Pink Anderson & Little Pink, Keb` Mo, Big Bill Broonzy, Muddy Waters, Black Spider Dumpling, Hound Dog Taylor, Pine Top Smith, Screamin Jay Hawkins, Little Richard, Professor Longhair, Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, Smellfoot Johnson, Jake “The Snake” Edwards and the It Doesn`t Matters…..

These guys are the real cats….and Robert Johnson obviously don`t need no moniker….
I`ve written some rules about the blues over here just to help anybody get started with the blues.

If you`d like to find the missing jigsaw piece in American musical history featuring African American; Cajun; European American; Anglo-American blues, folk country rarities here it is:

You can listen to the tracks here. This superb set features commercially recorded but hard to find and rare 78rpm songs by artists from Blind Lemon, to Blind Willie, Chubby Parker and Rabbit Brown.

    Awesome video! I was not familiar with this blues artist. Thanks for sharing! I will definitely be searching for more of his work…
