The Early Masters of American Blues series provides the unique opportunity to study the true roots of modern blues. Stefan Grossman, noted roots-blues guitarist and musicologist, has compiled this fascinating collection of 16 songs, transcribed exactly as performed by legendary blues master Lonnie Johnson. In addition to Stefan's expert transcriptions, the book includes a CD containing the original recordings of Lonnie Johnson so you can hear the music as he performed it.

One of the most influential blues artists of the 20th century, Lonnie Johnson began his 50-year music career in the early 1920s, and continued to perform and record until his passing in 1970. Recording both as a soloist and with legends like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Eddie Lang, Lonnie Johnson's influence can still be heard today, from the work of blues guitar greats like T-Bone Walker and B.B. King, to a whole new generation of blues players.
Mr. Johnson's blues
Love story blues
To do this, you got to know how
Blues in G
Away down in the alley blues
Sweet woman you can't go wrong
I'm so tired of living all alone
Bitin' flea blues
Life saver blues
Blue ghost blues
Uncle Ned don't use your head
Cat you been messin' aroun'
There is no justice
Go back to your no good man
Stomping 'em along slow
Woke up with them blues in my fingers.
