Possibly the most gifted and accomplished guitarist of the early blues scene. His fingers moved liked greased lightning. Those who have not sat back to listen to the intricate work he created are missing it all. The body of work he created helped Eric Clapton, John Mayall and many many others create their careers.
Been listening to Big Bill since I was a child, I'm 61 now, my father was a guitar man and just loved Big Bill, he used to plug in his guitar get a Mason Jar of moonshine and play along with Big Bill's records .. See if you can find "Keep Your Hands Off Of Her".. or listen to him do backup work for Washboard Sam (Robert Brown) on "Morning Dove Blues" or "Prowling Groundhog".. Big Bill was one of the best accoustic guitar players, if you like the blues you'll enjoy Big Bill Broonzy.
