Rev. Edward W. Clayborn

also I don't think there's anything in Charlie Patton's slide playing that would preclude it all being played lap-style. I know Son House said he played regular bottleneck style as well, but Son said a lot of things. At the very least, I don't think that there's a single slide tune Patton played with a note that could be said 100% to be conventionally fretted. The closest I think would be the bass notes in Magnolia Blues/When Your Way Gets Dark but I think those could be played with a bar and there's one point in one of the tunes where one of them sounds like it is.

John Fahey told me that he thought Patton played all his slide pieces lap style.
