    I’m referring to Blind Willie Johnson’s masterpiece. Ry Cooder called it “the most transcendent piece in American music.”

    Jack White called it “the greatest example of slide guitar ever recorded.”

    Interesting, one of the main photos of the guy playing guitar in the video is Blind Willie Mctell, not Johnson
