A blast from the past

Yesterday I bought a bottleneck, for playing blues slide guitar. Had great fun with it and started remembering songs that I grew up with. This is one of them - The Allman Brothers, playing Statesboro Blues...

If this doesn't get you tapping your foot and muttering "Alright", nothing will!

Oooh, FUN!

I am completely enjoying this time of year. I love the weather, the sun and the long days. That song is the perfect summer music!

Zig - you should do. Set aside a guitar for it, tune it to an E chord and away you go. It is really easy to get some awesome sounds.

Terri - It is summer music isn't it? I think my summer is going to be a Blues summer. Alright...

(yes, I earned an A+ in nagging!) LOL!!

Chief, I can so see you jamming on your bottle neck. Now all you need is the really long hair.

I'm with logzie, we want to see a video with you jamming.

Sorry about the delete, I was trying to edit...ooooopps!!

Nice! Now I'm even more jazzed to see them in August with Rat Dog!

Teresa - Trying to pluck up the courage - it has been a long time since I played for someone else! A+? I think you have been very restrained!

Chachi - I used to have really long hair like that, but I had to pretend to grow up at some point. Guitar video might not be far off - trying to find the courage to film myself.

Mr G - You are going to see them? Wow! I had no idea they were back again! That is one gig I would love to go to!
