Ernie Hawkins provides an in-depth examination of the guitar style of one of the most distinctive Blues originals, Blind Willie McTell.
McTell made his name recording blues records from 1927, scoring a lasting 'hit' with the now-standard Statesboro Blues. His swift and clean fingerpicking technique, played on a Stella 12-string Guitar, inspired countless greats including Bob Dylan and Keith Richards. McTell was also a master slide player, able to melt hearts with both blues and gospel gems.
In this DVD tutorial, Ernie Hawkins teaches Blind Willie's greatest songs, including Come Around To My House Mama and Broke Down Engine
