Great book to start learning Rev Gary Davis' style! One of Stefan Grossman's early tab books. I don't find the tab hard to read--it would be nice if tab and timing were together, but this is digitized version of a '70's book. Besides, Stefan notes in his intro material that you really have to listen to the music to get it. The tab can help you get there, but it's not enough. All the songs are now available on YouTube, so there's not a great need for a cd to go along with it. I also highly recommend Ernie Hawkin's dvds on Rev Davis, available from Grossman's GuitarWorkshop site

There are some great songs in here (I think.) Unfortunately, the tabs are nearly illegible. (Grossman's tabs are never my favorites, but these are even worse than usual.) He should have included a score in standard music notation to clarify things, but he didn't. There is a vocal score for each song, printed on a separate page, but they don't include the guitar part. Rev. Gary Davis's wonderful music deserves better than this!

There's enough songs to keep a good guitarist busy and happy for a while. If you're a beginner you'll be frustrated for a while. Other reviewers mentioned a CD. I was expecting a CD based on a user review. If you're expecting a CD don't unless it's explicitely mentioned. The book makes no reference to a CD, neither does ... (except in their user reviews). I don't know where they got the CD from, I didn't. --mike

This book by Stefan Grossman offers an impressive collection of solos by Rev. Gary Davis. As most of you know, Gary Davis was a blind guitarist who played in a complicated, syncopated ragtime style somewhat reminiscent of Blind Blake. Apparently, Grossman took some lessons from Davis in New York City.
The book includes a generous selection of transcriptions, all accompanied by informative comments, an interview with Reverend Davis, and helpful photos of hand positions.
Unfortunately, the tablature is a bit of a mess as it is placed on pages separate from the notation. And the tablature does not contain rhythm markings. Thus, to a guitarist who relies on tablature, the interpretation of the rhythms will be frustrating and maybe even impossible. This book is an ambitious effort but with no companion recording it is possibly of marginal value to non-readers.
But those who can read basic music notation and have fairly good fingerpicking technique will find a lot of great guitar music here. The songs contain a lot of fascinating ideas that can be added to your own fingerpicking style.

Unlike standard tab books, this book has the tab on one page and the standard notation on the next page, and it's in 12/8 time! It's nearly impossible to determine if the tab notes are triplets or eigth notes or what the actual note duration is. I also saw no mention of a companion CD as another reviewer referred to. The best place to start is the Rev. Gary Davis CD Blues & Ragtime which comes with 5 standard tab notation songs transcribed in the liner notes by Stephan Grossman (several are identical to the songs in this book) but they are much easier to read and understand.

If you want to reproduce Jorma Kaukonnen 's versions of his songs, then this book is no help. The transcriptions are difficult to read and do not sound that great.
