Lesson One: Key Of E: Mississippi John's blues in E are very distinct and unusual. Avalon Blues is a showcase arrangement that illustrates many of John's musical approaches in this key. This is followed by Sliding Delta. John did not play many tunes in an open D tuning but You Don't Want Me and Payday conclude this lesson. There are both gems!
Lesson Two: Key Of A: Blues in A were a tour de force in Mississippi John's repertoire. His Coffee Blues and Monday Morning Blues are fine examples of his blues playing in the key of A. We conclude with his Candyman.
Lesson Three: Key Of D: Some of John's finest playing can be found in his arrangements in the key of D. These capture a country blues feel within a piano sounding style. C.C.Rider, Stagolee, Big Leg Blues and Corrina Corrina are fine examples of this.
