'The strangest, most complex and bizarre of all blues artists.' – John Fahey

Skip James is perhaps the most stylistically original of the blues performers from the MississippiRiver Delta region, with his unusual Dm (Crossnote) tuning, haunting falsetto vocals, and an intense, variable marriage of music and text. James made a number of recordings for Paramount before the Depression carried him intoobscurity, but those recordings would form the basis of his reputation and secure him as one of the legends of that classic era of blues.

In this 2 DVD set Tom Feldmann brings you through Skip's classic 1931 bluesrecordingsas well as a few fan favorites from his rediscovery years, Crow Jane, Worried Blues, Look Down the Road and All Night Long. Nearly all of the 1931 guitar recordings were played using Crossnote tuning and DVD One is dedicated tothose songs with Feldmann teaching you every aspect of Skip's playing in this tuning. DVD Two continues with two more classics in Crossnote tuning and then turns to Standard tuning for songs in D and E positions and ends withSkip's lone Spanish tuning (Open G) recording, Special Rider Blues.

Tablature is included as a PDF file on each DVD. In addition the original 1931 recordings of the songs covered are included as well as live footage ofSkip James from the 1966 Newport Folk Festival.
