In this workshop Eric digs deep into the style of Mississippi bluesman Big Joe Williams. Big Joe played guitar with a funky and unique approach using open G tuning capoed at the 2nd fret. He doubled some of the some strings on his guitar to create a 9 string instrument! His driving rhythm and pentatonic based riffs are part of the Mississippi blues tradition that can also be heard in the music of John Lee Hooker and R.L. Burnside. For this class Eric will break down his song Salt Rock Blues from the album “the original”.
