Watch the Mississippi Blues 3 online guitar lesson by Tim Sparks from Post-Modern Fingerstyle Blues

Taking a cue from the great George Van Eps, this arrangement of "Mississippi Blues" allows every line to follow its own path. And that leads us into some very interesting places, including constant variations of the melody and turnarounds that are never played the same way twice. Tune to standard (EADGBE, low to high) and jump right into the opening double-stop melody. You're encouraged to find different voices and fingerings where possible so that you can start making the song your own while you learn.
