From the Wikipedia page:
[Davey] Graham…was a British guitarist and one of the most influential figures in the 1960s British folk revival. He inspired many famous practitioners of the fingerstyle acoustic guitar such as Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Martin Carthy, John Martyn, Paul Simon and Jimmy Page, who based his solo “White Summer” on Graham’s “She moved thru’ the Bizarre/Blue Raga” and “Mustapha”. Graham is probably best-known for his acoustic instrumental, “Anji” and for his pioneering use of DADGAD tuning, later widely adopted by acoustic guitarists.
