Feb 15, 2019- The rural blues of the Mississippi hill country is guitar music, characterized by percussive, repetitive riffs, a droning syncopated driving beat, often with esoteric open tunings often played using a glass or metal slide, a tonal harmonic sound reminiscent of banjer music from West Africa owing its rhythmic intensity to a fife-and-drum band tradition. The hill country sound is sometimes called stomp because it is easy to dance to, with a repetitive drone that is trance inducing.
