Son House, “Death Letter Blues” (1967)

I put fresh strings on the resonator this weekend, so it’s time to get inspired, and who better to inspire than the great guitar abuser, Son House. Through the sheer power of his attack, House seems to drag a greater variety of sounds out of his resonator than anyone else, except the likewise aggressive Bukka White. Plus his glasses and sweater in this clip are pretty awesome. Time to start the week off right.
