Muddy Waters literally electrified the Chicago blues world in 1948 with the release of his first single, "I Can't Be Satisfied" b/w "Feel Like Going Home,' on Chess Records. By taking the Robert Johnson and Son House-inspired acoustic Delta blues that he had played back in Mississippi and firing it up with raw amplification, he created the blueprint for generations of Chicago blues. Arguably the heaviest bluesman ever, Muddy sang from the depths of human emotion while wringing heart-wrenching screams from his slide guitar. When he added a second guitarist and rhythm section to his music, he invented the sound of not only the modern blues combo but countless rock bands, as well. Muddy Waters' guitar style reflects the blues tradition all the way back to the roots of this classic American song form. By learning the secrets of his technique, you can get your own mojo working for you.
