The Complete Guitarist focuses on Davey's interpretations of Celtic melodies. A really good solo guitar album by Davey (& or Davy) Graham, and one I always seem to come back to. I think it is very listenable, even if you aren't as interested in learning the guitar techniques displayed here. The Irish tunes tend to be my favourites here, but overall I think the other melodies and how Graham has arranged them, are just as good.
You may not know Davey Graham, but you’ve probably heard those who have. In late ‘Fifties England, here was a virtuoso in a folk scene just starting to play. Many guitarists call him an influence -–people like Bert Jansch and John Renbourn. It continues today: adapting Moorish music to guitar, Graham hit upon the D-A-D-G-A-D tuning, now used by Pierre Bensusan.
