If you want to learn how to make songs yourself, you take your guitar and you go to where the road crosses that way, where a crossroads is. Get there, be sure to get there just a little 'fore 12 that night so you know you'll be there. You have your guitar and be playing a piece there by yourself... A big black man will walk up there and take your guitar and he'll tune it. And then he'll play a piece and hand it back to you. That's the way I learned to play anything I want - Tommy Johnson, to his brother

Stumbled on this old thread. After 6 pages of replies there are so many great tunes already suggested, but here are a handful that I don't believe were on the list. They are essential to me:

1) Robert Wilkins - I'll Go with Her
2) Sleepy John Estes - Special Agent
3) Blind Willie McTell - Scarey Day Blues
4) Kokomo Arnold - The Twelves (Dirty Dozens) & Paddlin' Madeline
5) Joe Callicott - Fare Thee Well
6) Peg Leg Howell - Turtle Dove
7) Willie Reed - Dreaming Blues
8) Otto Virgial - Little Girl in Rome
9) Mance Lipscomb - Freddie
10) Fred McDowell - Kokomo
