Thread Name: Ragtime Guitar
Subject: RE: Ragtime Guitar

Blind Blake, Blind Boy Fuller, Rev. Gary Davis, et al. played a style that is now called "Piedmont." It is considered a blues style heavily influenced by ragtime. You could use that term to differentiate their style from guitarists who play classic piano rags on guitar.
