Watch the Delta Blues online guitar lesson by Robben Ford from Rhythm Revolution
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.
