Mississippi John Hurt’s “Let the Mermaids Flirt with Me” is a classic of fingerstyle blues guitar, and just the kind of thing Orville Johnson teaches in his new Fingerstyle Blues Guitar course, which Peghead Nation just launched. Fingerstyle Blues Guitar is an extension of Orville’s popular Blues Guitar course, in which he teaches bottleneck slide and blues lead as well as country blues fingerpicking. In his Fingerstyle Blues Guitar course, Orville expands on the songs and techniques he taught in Blues Guitar with songs from the repertoires of Big Bill Broonzy, Lightnin' Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb, Mississippi John Hurt, and more.
