COUNTRY BLUES GUITAR collects rare recordings by blues guitar wizards Rory Block and Stefan Grossman. Though the acoustic duo was still quite young at the time, you'd never know it from their command of the idiom. Intricate fingerpicking is the order of the day on these 31 cuts, which include blues classics like "I'm So Glad," "Candyman," and "Mississippi Blues." The legendary Son House makes a guest appearance on vocals. The set also comes with an instructional tab booklet and CD-R on country blues guitar technique.
