The Guitar of Furry Lewis by John Miller. For Guitar (Fingerpicking). Solos. Grossman-Gtr Workshop. Blues. Beginning. DVD. Duration 89 minutes. Published by Grossman's Guitar Workshop (MB.GW810DVD).
Furry Lewis was one of the most improvisatory of bluesmen. He was a two-finger picker with an unusually varied repertoire of right-hand attacks. In open tunings, he favored big brush strokes with his thumb on the upbeats. While playing in open E, he adopted a very complex, detail-oriented approach. A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.
