The guitar styles and techniques of Blind Blake, Big Bill Broonzy and Rev. Gary Davis combine blues and ragtime techniques into a style that can best be described as raggin' the blues. This exciting and challenging approach to fingerstyle playing combines complex right hand picking with intricate left hand fingerings, single string runs and rhythmic licks. In this lesson, Stefan Grossman illustrates and explains seven famous ragtime blues instrumentals.
