Watch the The Modern Mississippi Sound online guitar lesson by Luther Dickinson from Modern Mississippi Slide

Modern Mississippi fingerstyle guitar is a culmination of a lot of different influences, players and techniques. It all started when I got my first electric guitar when I was 5 or 6. My dad told me that if I learned three chords he'd get me an amp, but my mom told him to tune it open for me. So, he did! It was tuned to an open E chord and he showed me Bo Diddley so I could strum away. The same thing with fingerpicking - it was passed down to me from my mom and dad, so these things have just always been a part of the guitar for me.

I had grown up listening to the blues artists in my dad's record collection, and had thought it was a thing of the past. Modern blues music didn't really interest me, until I discovered Hill Country countrified electric blues and realized that it was all around me and in my backyard. These multi-generational blues families were tearing it up and having so much fun...they were having picnics, house parties and there was a nightclub. Each one of these families was filled with amazing guitar players, of all different styles. Guys like RL Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Otha Turner, Fred MacDowell, etc. were all huge influences on me. I incorporated all of their styles into my playing and personal vocabulary, and now I want to take you through some of their approaches so you can bring it into yours as well!
