Blind Lemon Jefferson guitar portrait

Blind Lemon Jefferson

24 September, 1893 – 19 December, 1929
Blind Lemon Jefferson, born around 1893, played in a pianistic style on the guitar, with twinkling tremelos and dazzling double-stops. He had a rare trifecta of skill-sets: (i) an ability to make the guitar sing, (ii) thunderous (and one-of-a-kind) vocals, as well as (iii) haunting lyrics that touch at-times uncomfortably at the truest fibers of life.
