Elizabeth Cotten Elizabeth Cotten
Elizabeth Cotten (January 5, 1895 - June 29, 1987 in Syracuse) was an American musician. Her style was traditional blues and folk, but she is known for her unique method of playing a right-handed guitar "upside down" in standard tuning, picking the high melody with her right thumb. This style has become know as "Cotten picking." As a child, she toyed with her older siblings instruments, and began playing the guitar upside down (left handed). By age 8 she was playing songs, and scraped together enough money for her own guitar.
