Who was Mississippi John Hurt?
Listen to "Frankie and Albert" by clicking here
"Frankie was a good girl, everybody know. She paid a hundred dollars for Albert's suit of clothes. He was her man... but he done her wrong."
Guitarists hearing songs like "Worried Blues" or "Monday Morning Blues" (iTunes music store) often wonder how many guitars are playing.
Also, you can watch some guitar instruction teaching how to play his songs (good luck) at homespun tapes
. The 2 minute clip doesn't show the amazing songs.
One of the instructors was so influenced by John Hurt that he named his band after one of John's songs: "I just had to have... my lovin spoonful."
You can get the John Sebastian: Mississippi John Hurt Fingerpicking Blues DVD from Netflix, as soon as I return it.
