So much popular music influence came to us from the Mississippi
Delta region. Besides the still remembered artists we accept as a
matter of common musical language the shuffle rhythms, blue notes,
and song forms like 12 bar blues. I’ve got several favourite songs to jam
on; Catfish, Kind Hearted Woman, Death Letter, Crossroads, and more.
I’m going to bring a couple of acoustic guitars to accommodate alternate
tunings. As I so often say though, it’s just the blues. Songs are in
common keys and all that’s required is some good feel and 7 chords.
Acoustic or electric. Variety is good.
Look forward to seeing you. Our last session of this season.
