I came across some mind blowing instructional videos by this guy. Itís what Iíve personally been searching for for years! He covers a wide range of blues and country mostly played fingerstyle. From what I saw, most of his ďsong packsĒ are 3 or 4 songs for the equivalent of $15 USD (heís based in Holland but PayPal coverts the Euro charges). Never heard of him before but his arrangements are stellar and he breaks them down so well the included tablature really isnít necessary. Iíll be stocking up on a lot of his stuff, as well as ordering more Toby Walker dvdís as soon as my sizeable accident settlement arrives. You might check him out if you donít already know who he is. Very invigorating playing style. He says thereís no scales, etc, just learning songs like the old bluesmen did.

Dave, that's interesting because I ran across him years ago and found some blues stuff I really liked. Then somewhere down the road, I kinda lost track of him. So, I'm glad to be reminded. Maybe folks can find some good videos. Thanks for the post.

He has a nice arrangement of "When I'm 64" which I should dig out and finally get under my fingers. I'll be 64 in March. I guess its time to learn it

Heís been my favorite for years! There are many cool things about him. One is that he not only plays the blues really well, but sings authentically - despite the fact that heís Belgian, and has a Belgian accent when speaking English. Another really cool thing about him is that heís doing this all for the love of it. He does sell some tabs, but for a nominal price - mostly just to cover his cost. The rest is just free. From what I read, he doesnít play out - heís strictly a self-produced internet phenomenon, recording and producing from home. Heís retired (I think I read he worked in retail), and does this all as a hobby, to share his passion.

I wonder if this is what the future looks like for music...

I've subbed to Daddy Stovepipe for a long time, I don't copy his style, but enjoy his playing and his conversational style.

I first picked up a ukulele 5 years ago and it was his blues ukulele tabs that really turned my attention to old style finger picking blues. I soon ran out of his ukulele tabs and so went out and bought a guitar. Now it's what I mainly play (except on a flamenco guitar). However, most of my current repertoire comes from lessons from Stefan Grossman's site.
Guitar: Camps Primera Negra A (a flamenco guitar)
Strings: Aquila Rubino, Knobloch CX, Aquila Alchemia
I play: Acoustic blues & folk
