Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Byther Smith (born April 17, 1933, Monticello, Mississippi) is an American blues musician noted for his gritty style and uncompromising delivery. Born the sixth oldest of seven children, Smith immigrated to Chicago in the mid 1950s. Although he worked for a candy company, Smith's real passion was music. He played bass for a three-piece jazz combo for a few years, but he eventually got a spot playing rhythm guitar for Otis Rush. He also backed Junior Wells, Big Mama Thornton and George "Harmonica" Smith. In the early 1960s, Smith began to take the guitar more seriously and learned much from J. B. Lenoir, Robert Lockwood, Jr., and Hubert Sumlin.show more
