Janis Joplin and the Delta Blues

No doubt, Janis was one of the greatest singers the past century produced. She was so rooted in the blues and paid beautiful respects to it in many ways - for instance, I believe it was her who financed Bessie Smith's tombstone. In the Typewriter Tapes, named as such b/c Janis was playing the typewriter as a percussion instrument!, she pairs up with her guitar player to record a few tunes that, aesthetically, present how she would have sounded as a contemporary of Patton or House! Awesome stuff.

Here she sings Hesitation Blues...

  2. When you take lessons in the real world, you are on someone else's schedule – and not being able to arrange your schedule to allow lessons on that person's time may prevent you from being able to learn. But, when you are taking guitar lessons online, you determine when you can practice and for how long at a time – giving you the freedom to keep your schedule as it was before.
