The Guitar of Furry Lewis composed by John Miller. For Guitar (Fingerpicking). Boxed, Solos. Grossman Guitar 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.
