Son House - Death Letter Blues Video

According to some Son House taught Robert Johnson and Muddy Waters the slide blues. One of my favorite stories about Son House is about when he started performing at Blues festivals again in the mid 1960s. It is said that Muddy Waters would tell all his band members to be quiet and pay attention when Son House was playing because even the Late Great Muddy Waters respected Son House as the real deal.

If you want to play the blues you have to live the blues. Son House was a man who was the embodiment of the Blues.

This video shows Son House's easy guitar work and any fan of steel guitars has got to love Son's guitar. I love the sad haunting quality of this song. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
