Ole School rhythmn
« on: September 18, 2004, 02:12:34 PM »
Any guitars out there who are into "ole school" gospel guitar rhythmn playing(Staple Singers, Julius Cheeks' guitarist, back-in-the-day Quartet backup guitar)? I want to learn that style. Help appreciated. I'm influenced by Hurbert Sumlin and Willie Dixon of Howlin' Wolf fame.
