One of the musicians that has inspired my acoustic guitar playing very much is Charley Patton. He only recorded during the 30’s and passed away way to soon. This clip features the trademark playing by Patton with a very aggressive bass. He played it on an acoustic guitar, and I usually do that as well, but for this clip I did it on an electric. It also includes some strange drums and a harmonica.
This clip is actually rather long, I’ll post shortened edited versions at some other time.
