Twist It, Bo!
A second installment of Bo Carter re-issues brought to you in 1973 by world-renowned record label Yazoo Records. The unusual approach he took with strumming the guitar makes him one of the masters of the blues guitar. In a genre where so many collections of musicians' recordings come off as repetitive, Carter's ability to maintain the listener's attentiveness to what he's doing with the guitar is quite astounding.
For those who are so taken in by his picking that they wish to try to emulate, there is an actual DVD devoted to studying his playing technique here.
