Thread Name: Info: Joseph Spence (1910-1984)
Subject: RE: Joseph Spence
You have found the key to guitar heaven. In my mind, the spaces between the notes represent Spence's true genius. Check out Living on the Hallelujah Side. The Complete 1958 Folkways Recordings is also great (I believe Sam Charters ir responsible. Thank you, Sam), and here is a special treat. Mel Bay has a book of transcriptions under this same title. How anyone could tab Joseph Spence is completely beyond me. I used to play with a friend, and we always played Great Dream From Heaven. Only difference was we were using two guitars while Joseph was only using one!.
