Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins (March 15, 1912 January 30, 1982) was a country blues guitar legend, from Houston, Texas.

Born in Centerville, Texas, he learned the blues when young in Buffalo, Texas from Blind Lemon Jefferson and his older cousin, country-blues singer Alger 'Texas' Alexander. Hopkins' fast finger style is very distinct.
