GUEST,SirCoughsalot Help with Townes Van Zandt Blues Playing (11) Help with Townes Van Zandt Blues Playing 18 Dec 11

I am a big Townes Van Zandt songs, and I really dig his bluesy playing on songs like Brand New Companion or Broke Down Engine Blues... I'm sure there are others... But I can't even begin to figure out how to play like it. I can't even tell if he's using a flatpick or fingerpicking. I thought maybe some of you guys here could help.

Links to some examples:

Brand New Companion

Broke Down Engine

Thanks everybody.
