Watch the Wayfaring Stranger 2 online guitar lesson by Tim Sparks from Post-Modern Fingerstyle Blues

Wayfaring Stranger calls on the traditional elements of fingerstyle playing- alternating bass, jazz voicings, attention to melody - yet it all shapes up to be anything but traditional. Played up-tempo or down, there's a lyrical, longing quality to the melody that is unmistakably rooted in gospel.
