This next blues we are going to play is kind of out of the delta approach, inspired by John Lee Hooker and Mississippi Fred McDowell. Although Fred was more of a slide player. A lot of the Mississippi players were slide players. I never really got into that so I developed my own thing based on John Lee Hooker, Lightnin' Hopkins and a little bit of Brownie McGhee.
