The Early Masters of American Blues series provides the unique opportunity to study the true roots of modern blues. Stefan Grossman, noted roots-blues guitarist and musicologist, has compiled this fascinating collection of 19 songs, transcribed exactly as performed by legendary blues master Blind Boy Fuller. In addition to Stefan's expert transcriptions, the book includes a CD containing the original recordings of Blind Boy Fuller so you can hear the music as he performed it. Blind Boy Fuller was one of the most popular "Piedmont Blues" artists, recording most of his work during the late 1930s. Close friends with Sonny Terry and Rev. Gary Davis, his "country blues" music and fingerpicking playing style influenced thousands of blues players.
