I wasnt aware of Sister Rosetta Tharpe until quite recently when I saw this docu on TV.. came across it on YouTube and thought id share.. this is a real interesting documentary on a musician who seems hugely influential on the guitar music we hear yet one of many great musicians that seemed to have been forgotten today, so if youve not heard of her check this out. Very cool :)

Cool stuff but I think I prefer the popular blue's Memphis Minnie style. Great stuff from Gospel Music but I feel it was not mainstream enough for popular music.


Lots of video's with me playing music as well as some of my favorite song's here at Youtube
