Memphis Acoustic Blues


The Memphis style of acoustic country blues is historically important for the rise of two distinct changes it brought to the music. First was the rise of the jug band, a style of lighthearted blues played on homemade instruments with a pronounced Dixieland jazz feel to it. The second influence -- and perhaps most important -- was the beginnings of assigning parts to guitarists for solo and rhythm work, a now-commonplace form of arranging that is part and parcel of all modern day blues bands.
