Another key player to the Delta Blues style is Son House. While living a life much longer than Robert Johnson, his stories and playing are none the less just as important to the region. Utilizing our slide and open G tuning, we will take a look at an example to try and emulate this Delta Blues man's style. The key difference between this and our Robert Johnson lesson is that Son House had more of a physical technique on the instrument, which we will add to this example as we progress. Let's get to it.
