*Down Beat One of the most influential blues guitarists to come out of the state of Texas, Lightnin' Hopkins' unique fingerpicking guitar style would alternate single-note leads with rhythm and bass guitar, adding percussive elements by slapping or tapping the body of his guitar. The 1960 album Lightnin' presents him in a trio format backed by bassist Leonard Gaskin and drummer Samuel "Sticks" Evans. 180-gram VIRGIN VINYL LIMITED EDITION. The Complete Album + 2 Bonus Tracks.
