The Early Masters of American Blues series provides the unique opportunity to study the true roots of modern blues. Stefan Grossman, noted roots-blues guitarist and musicologist, has compiled this fascinating collection of 13 songs, transcribed exactly as performed by legendary blues master Rev. Gary Davis. In addition to Stefan's expert transcriptions, the book includes a CD containing the original recordings of Rev. Gary Davis so you can hear the music as he performed it. Reverend Gary Davis, also known as Blind Gary Davis, was a master musician who felt comfortable playing in a wide variety of styles and techniques. He could freely improvise on ragtime, religious and blues themes, and was an exciting and vibrant performer. An ordained minister, Rev. Davis often expressed a preference for gospel music, sometimes refusing to play the blues. In addition to transcribing all the songs in this collection, Stefan Grossman was also a student of Rev. Davis.

'Exploit your limitations' was the most profound advice ever given by the great jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery. 'tOTAL GILTRAP' is a prime example of this. Indeed, Giltrap himself is a living example of an artist who has exploited his limited, right hand pick and little finger technique to its nth degree. In this volume, we explore open tunings, legato technique, two-handed tapping and the harp-like technique of open strings and harmonics. This is all wrapped up in a very English approach to melody and invention. All the techniques and pieces in the book are featured on an accompanying CD. All the examples are recorded at half tempo and full tempo, making it a very easy to follow guide. 'tOTAL GILTRAP' is a snapshot of ideas ready to be 'exploited' and developed by the willing and imaginative student of the modern day acoustic guitar.

The guitarists' guitarist and the songwriters' songwriter, the legendary Bert Jansch has influenced stars as diverse as Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Paul Simon, Sandy Denny, Nick Drake, Donovan, Pete Townshend, Neil Young, Bernard Butler, Beth Orton and Laura Marling. Unassuming, enigmatic and completely focused on his music until his death in October 2011, he remained singularly resilient to the vagaries of fashion, being rediscovered and revered by new generations of artists every few years. Born in Edinburgh in 1943, Jansch became an inspirational and pioneering figure during Britain's 'folk revival' of the 1960s. In 1967 he formed folk/jazz fusion band Pentangle with John Renbourn and enjoyed international success until they split in 1973, when he returned to a solo career. In Dazzling Stranger, Colin Harper looks at the career Jansch enjoyed, which has secured his standing as one of the true originals of British music.
