Watch the Lesson 2 online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Fingerstyle Blues Handbook 2

Like several other prewar bluesmen, Mississippi John Hurt made a handful of recordings in the late 1920s but didn't see widespread success as a professional musician until his "rediscovery" more than three decades later. In 1963, while others merely wondered what became of Hurt or assumed he'd passed away years ago, folk musicologist Tom Hoskins, taking the words of Hurt's "Avalon Blues" literally, got in the car, drove to Avalon, Mississippi and discovered Hurt alive and well and still playing in his own beautiful, relaxed style.
