Item #GW832

featuring Fred McDowell, Robert Wilkins, Bukka White, Blind Willie Johnson, Muddy Waters, Blind Willie McTell, Edward W. Clayborn and Charlie Patton

Many southern blues musicians performed and recorded gospel songs; spirituals or church songs as they were called. Some, like Blind Willie Johnson and Edward W. Clayborn, strictly adhered to a religious message earning them the handle “guitar evangelists”, while others, like Fred McDowell and Charlie Patton, blurred the socially imposed lines and mingled gospel with the blues.

In this anthology of Bottleneck Gospel Guitar Tom Feldmann highlights the fervent and aggressive slide playing of Fred McDowell, Robert Wilkins, Muddy Waters, Bukka White, Blind Willie Johnson, Edward W. Clayborn and Charlie Patton. Each player offers a distinct style and Tom breaks down their techniques allowing you to imitate the masters as well as build a repertoire of classic bottleneck gospel blues.

A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. In addition the original old recordings of all the tunes are included.
