"Jimmy Rodgers recorded his first "yodel", Blue Yodel "T "for Texas), on November 30, 1927, in Camden, N.J. He was living in North Carolina at the time. Chester Burnett( later to be Howlin' Wolfe) was only 17 at the time, and lived on the Young and Morrow plantation near Ruleville, Mississippi. His father bought him his first guitar in January, 1928."

Like I said, the story is probably bunkum.
