Sarah Friedman Lesson 5 Assignment Blues and Ragtime Part I The three styles of the blues include country blues, classic blues, and city/ urban blues. The country blues only included one singer, usually a wanderer, accompanying himself with an instrument, commonly a guitar. Country blues is divided into two styles, the Mississippi Delta style and the Texas style. The Mississippi Delta was an area of extreme poverty; Delta blues incorporates rough and heavy rhythm, and a "bottleneck" slide. In Charley Patton’s “Pony Blues,” he his voice is very hoarse. Texas blues, another subgenre of country blues, is more relaxed and open allowing a swing aspect to shine through. In Blind Lemon Jefferson’s “Black Snake Moan,” I get a greater sense of improvisation and syncopated rhythms. He breaks the rhythm and answers his own vocals with his guitar. I was surprised to learn that country blues singers prefer the guitar to the banjo, because when I think of country style I immediately think of the sound of a banjo.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
