GUEST,Jeremy J Woodland Tune Req: Tuning Style for Mississippi John H (10) RE: Tune Req: Tuning Style for Mississippi John H 19 Oct 00


Jeb,

To my knowledge Mississippi John Hurt rarley used alternate tunings. I think talking Casey in is open G (DGDGBD). I find Hurt's style works really well using finger picks on my right hand fingers. Also try resting your pinky on the face of the guitar- modern teaching discourages it, but Hurt and Davis always did it!
