SLOP JAR DELTA FUNK:
“Improvised instruments were part of the early blues scene.Blues legends described how band members would scour their neighborhoods for parts and pieces that could be turned into makeshift instruments. One tale out of Helena, Arkansas, described percussionists using old pickle jars and cracker barrels — anything they could find to keep a beat on. One solution was a barrel used by a butcher to catch hog slop. That was a good one because, like a drum set, it produced a variety of tones.
They called it a slop jar. I use a lot of old open tuning for slide guitar, hence the Delta tunings. And I’m always accused of being funky.” - NICK
