Memphis Minnie by Del Rey. Guitar Queen. Master finger-style guitar player. Elizabeth Kid Douglas, known as Memphis Minnie was an intricate guitarist, an astute songwriter and a stylistic innovator. Her work (over 200 recordings) leads the way through the development of blues guitar playing, starting with her first recordings in 1929. Starting in 1929, her records lead us through twenty years of recorded blues and illustrate her life, as she moved from the rural South to urban Chicago. Musically there were three basic phases to her style: the duet years with Kansas Joe, the Melrose band sound of the late thirties and early forties, and her later electric playing.
