Muddy Waters Guitar Style
Arguably the heaviest bluesman ever, Muddy Waters electrified the Chicago blues
world with the 1948 release of his first single. By taking the Robert Johnson and Son
House-inspired acoustic Delta blues that he had played in Mississippi and firing it up
with raw amplification, he created the blueprint for generations of Chicago blues
players. Bob Margolin played guitar in Muddy Waters' band for seven years in the
'70s, absorbing his music first-hand. In this video, he shares the secrets of Muddy's
solo guitar and ensemble work and covers slow blues, boogie blues, slide guitar and
guitar bass lines in standard and open tunings. Bob even plays an original song that
he wrote as a tribute to his former mentor.
As a special bonus, this video includes rare performance footage of Muddy.
