I personally think that he was very innovative as a lyricist, especially if you consider he wrote them prior to his 1936 and 1937 recording sessions.

If I was to pick one of the all-time lyricist, Robert Johnson would be #1 in my book.

He wasn't good enough to play in local bars until he went away for a year or so to learn how to play.

He never went to actually learn how to play guitar, he personally met with the Devil himself at the crossroads and sold his soul in order to be the greatest guitar player ever!

Where did you actually read that Johnson went off for a year or so to learn the guitar?

It was in a documentary about the music that influenced Led Zep. I'll get quotes/video on it later.

He basically combined the guy who taught him properly and Charlie Patton's guitar work and made it his own.
