In this tutorial, I will teach you my version of slide blues that I like to call "Mississippi Blues". Technically, it's not Delta Blues as is usually defined by players such as Robert Johnson and other legends, but it is a great way of getting a sound that evokes the nostalgia of that great time in blues history.

For this series of lessons, you will need to tune your guitar to a drop D tuning ( D A D G B E ) and get yourself a slide. I'm using a bottleneck slide, named for it's resemblance to the neck of a glass bottle. There are many kinds of slides available. Choose the one that you prefer.
