On today's date August 6th, 1973 Memphis Minnie passed away... Known as a #blues pioneer, Minnie was more than a good artist, she could hold her own against any of the blues artists of her time. Most importantly she influenced many of today’s successful and aspiring guitarists.
Here's a link to one of my articles on her:
