February 28 would have been the 80th birthday of the great, seminal, still underrated American Primitive guitar pioneer John Fahey (1939–2001). We honor him with this wonderful version of the incomparable and unpredictable steel-string master performing an old blues no doubt familiar to many of you. You’ll find lots of cool stuff about Fahey, including info about tunings, a discography, tablature for many of his pieces, and more at the official website dedicated to him.
