Thread Name: Origin: Yodeling
Subject: RE: ***Yodeling:History & Lyrics
There was a form of yodeling used in the blues also. Check out Tommy Johnson on "Cool drink of water blues" and "Canned Heat Blues" and others, also Mississippi Shieks (I think) on "Stop and Listen." It seemed to be centered around Jackson, Miss. It's a long way from Alpine yodeling but not so far from the cowboy style.
