Spread the love

Nasce a Chapel Hill, Carolina del Nord il 5 gennaio 1895. l’unica #donna del gruppo di figli George Nevills e Louise Price Nevills, a quanto pare. All’età di otto anni, iniziò a suonare il banjo del fratello maggiore e, poco dopo, la chitarra nascosta del fratello. Il problema era che oltre ad essere donna Elizabeth Cotten era anche mancina, un bel casino per il periodo dove i mancini erano visti davvero di cattiva luce, Ma Elizabeth sviluppa una tecnica molto particolare, e usando il classico finger picking inizia a suonare la chitarra capovolta, come faceva Jimi Hendrix il risultato è incredibile, ascoltatela in questa interpretazione del brano che la rese famosa. Freight Train, *nota: il nome sotto video è sbagliato.
