Hi John,  I am desperate to get involved with this event, the problem is I own all of these already ! - take that a as compliment

Well thanks, Andrew, and I hope that you're enjoying the Lemon book in particular, since I know that you're a big fan of his. I hope that you and your family are all doing well.
All best,

You are welcome John..... the Lemon Book, I am absorbed in it, a lifetimes work there for me. A great book.

my initial thoughts :

Excellent write up from Alan and Kip, some facts I never knew in there,  and nice analysis of some of his lyrics. Really enjoyed that.   

I found really interesting your piece about his time, I think you articulated that really well and in more detail than I ever gave Lemon credit for....I always thought that his guitar parts were so intricate and some cases going at such break neck speed he just took a rest on the one chord at the end of a lot verses, it usually makes me laugh.

You have also opened my ears to the Okeh version Matchbox blues, I hadn't gone to the top of the tree straight away for any other reason than I know the paramount versions intimately as I have been attempting to play them for years.   (I had always focused in on the Paramount version(s) only because I liked the foot tapping a the beginning.)
Oh my word, the Okeh version is incredible, some licks similar but a few of different variations. verses 2 I don't think that is in Paramount version(s) some examples of my one chord rest comment at the end of verse 2 and 3, considering the recordings are 3 months apart, I think, just shows he must have improvised a lot, varying tempo's, speed of the licks, wow. 

I am now starting to pick through other songs I thought I knew ! going to be here sometime.....

Much appreciated John, excellent book.
