The URL for Stephen Grossman is:

In particular there is a book in Grossman's "Masters of Country Blues Guitar" series called "The Music of Missippi John Hurt". This is all in standard tuning and it has mostly what I would call MJH standards. Another is his book "Legends of Country Blues Guitar". This is devoted to various old Blues players including MJH and has some of the newer things he did on Vanguard records. Some of these pieces are in open D and open E (which are fingered in the same way.) Both books come with CDs containing the original recordings. There are three great instrumentals by Rev. Gary Davis.
