Sylvester Weaver “Guitar Rag” (3:01)
(Recorded November 2, 1923 in New York City)

Sylvester Weaver’s “Guitar Blues” / “Guitar Rag” are said to be the very first country-blues recordings and the first known recorded songs of slide guitar, using a knife blade or the sawed-off neck of a bottle. “Guitar Rag” (which Weaver is said to have played on a Guitjo) became a blues classic.
Weaver re-recorded “Guitar Rag” on April 13, 1927 in New York City.

In 1936, Leon McAuliffe “took” Sylvester Weaver’s “Guitar Rag”, re-invented it and recorded it as “Steel Guitar Rag” with Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.
