Mississippi Blues - verse

The next tune is «Mississippi Blues», which was recorded for the Library of Congress by one Willie Brown. We know next to nothing about this , who is not the Willie Brown who played with Charley Patton and Son House, and who recorded classics such as «M & O Blues» and «Future Blues».

«Mississippi Blues» imitates blues piano playing of the 1920s-talls blues piano, and it shows you some of the possibilities of A.major. It is a classic. It is the graduation piece for blues fingerpickers. If you can play this, you can play fingerstyle delta blues guitar. Many guitarist have recorded this tune, among others Stefan Grossman, Rory Block and Jorma Kaukonen. It is often played as an instrumental, but Willie Brown played the verse as backing to his singing.
