Son House Lessons

Death Letter Blues

Son House's most renowned song, Death Letter Blues. It's a harsh tune so make sure you bring out those qualities with your right hand.


A cool little slide tune by Son House..check it out if you're a fan. It's all about getting a 'frantic' sort of vibrato with ragged right hand patterns to get the Son House sound.

Shetland Pony Blues

Shetland Pony Blues has got a really low-pitched tuning so make sure your right-hand fingers don't get too tangled inside the loose strings! At least that's what I found was tough - getting a poppy sound with the loose strings.
