Flatpicking Guitar Magazine declares Norman Blake a legend, and includes him in the "first name club" on the Internet flatpicking news list. The Norman Blake Anthology offers complete lyrics and melody lines to 40 original songs, written and notated just as Norman sings them. Often, the vocal version is followed by a second flatpicking solo edition in notation and tablature including introductions and solos within a given tune- all authorized by Norman himself! 200 pages, illustrated with photos from a distinguished 30-year career. Intermediate in difficulty.
