Watch the Lesson 19 online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Fingerstyle Blues Handbook 2

For a potent shot of unadulterated Dave Van Ronk, check out his 1976 "comeback" album Sunday Street. I learned so much from this solo vocal-and-guitar record which, educational value aside, is just a great listen. Van Ronk considered himself a singer and an arranger more than anything else, and while he incorporated countless classic blues moves into his arrangements, his song choices, singing style and arranging concept are so creative that his playing sounds consistently fresh and soulfully cliche-free.
