Re: Mississippi John Hurt - Biography
For some great insights into John Hurt's fingerpicking techniques and patterns I highly recommend the instructional DVD co-hosted and taught by John Sebastian and Happy Traum, who both learned from John Hurt during the early 60s "Folk boom" years. Even besides the instructional value, they relate with great fondness their humorous and memorable experiences with him.
