The Guitar Stylists--Spanish Tuning
« on: March 05, 2021, 09:44:18 AM »
Hi all,
Here is a place to list players who specialized and were notably accomplished and original in their approach to playing in Spanish tuning, whether conventionally fretting or using a slide. Once again, I'll start with two such players, and if you limit yourself to two players per post, more people can contribute:

Here are some guitar stylists in Spanish tuning:
   * Blind Roosevelt Graves
   * Peg Leg Howell

Any more out there?

All best,
Johnm

You beat me to it, it Johnm. One tuning with so much differentiation between the songs.

Hi all,
A couple more:

   * Barefoot Bill, a slew of titles

All best,
