Rev. Gary Davis was a musical genius. His music and guitar playing spanned a century of different techniques, styles and ideas and touched on so many musical formats, such as blues, ragtime, folk, gospel, marching songs and tin pan alley hits. In this series of four full-length video lessons, Ernie Hawkins teaches fourteen of Rev. Davis's most requested and famous gospel guitar arrangements. Rare footage of Rev. Davis playing many of the tunes taught in this collection is featured.

Ernie gives you a detailed rundown of each arrangement, analyzing the structure and timing of each phrase, verse and chorus and then replaying everything slower on a split screen with close-ups of both hands. A comprehensive 80 page tab/music booklet is included. All in all, almost six hours of instruction is presented.

    DOES IT GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS? WATCH AND LISTEN TO A BLUES MASTER, REV. GARY DAVIS, AND LEARN FROM ERNIE HAWKINS WHO STUDIED UNDER HIM. WHETHER YOU LIKE GOSPEL OR NOT, THIS 6 HOUR DVD SET IS A TOTAL BLUES IMMERSION FOR ANYONE! ERNIE HAWKINS DISECTS EACH OF REV...

    . DAVIS' SONGS SLOWLY AND METHODICALLY AND WITH ME BEING A BEGINNER (A YEAR AND A HALF WITH THE GUITAR) IT WAS A BLESSING. I WOULD RATE THIS SET AS BEGINNER OR EARLY INTERMEDIATE AND A MUST FOR YOUR BLUES LIBRARY! I WOULD ALSO RECOMMEND THE "C-A-G-E-D" MUSIC SYSTEM DVD SERIES BY ERNIE HAWKINS FOR USE PRIOR TO OR IN CONJUNCTION WITH THIS DVD SET. IT HELPS UNDERSTAND WHY THE REV. DAVIS DOES WHAT HE DOES.
