And he told me... I didn't know nothing about how to play no guitar at all. He said "Hey, go home. Take my advice. You go home. You get that.. straight. You know what I'm talking about? Put that pick down. You think I'm scolding you? You a grown man, Hubert - listen to me!" I went home, man. I went to my basement. And I'm going to tell you something... I was thinking about what Wolf said. He said "Hey, put the pick down." I put the pick down, man. I put the pick down and started using... fingers, you know what I mean? - Hubert Sumlin, on how Howlin' Wolf introduced him to fingerpicking.

Hi Joe,  saw some of your songs on Youtube.
Excellent. I particularly enjoyed "don't mess with a mule".
I'm sure you're gonna like it here.

Thank you, Harry. Glad you like it.

Hello, I'm Bud.  I was just checking this place out.  I play, study, and am fascinated with country guitar Blues.  The only real thing I'm looking for are others who share the same interests.  :D

Hello everyone. I'm new here although over the years I've referenced weeniecampbell many times for lyrics, etc. I've been playing guitar for about fifty-five years, about the last forty-five or so almost exclusively country blues. I was lucky enough when I first got into the genre when I was a lot younger to be able to find, meet and learn from some of the original old-school blues-guys when they were still alive. Over the years I've gigged a bit, taught a bit and tabbed quite a few pre-war blues tunes for others, trying to "pass it on." Not as young as I used to be, but I still play out a little (until the Covid-thing), like open-mics, fund-raisers, etc.

Anyway, hello!
