These tunes were inspired by the great "first generation" acoustic blues guitarists: Huddie Ledbetter, Mance Lipscomb, Gary Davis, Jesse Fuller, Blind Blake, and others. Author Fred Sokolow's tunes convey some of the same feelings as these early blues artists and are fun to play. Several of the tunes are in alternate tunings. Fred describes his inspiration for each piece in the book, and also performs it on the attached CD. In notation and tablature with suggested back-up chords.
