We knows nothing much about the blues... we called it blues, we called it breakdowns, we called it blues and some people say it's square dances... We didn't know what it was; the achin'-hearted blues is slow, breakdowns is fast - Percy Thomas, who played in the Son Simms Four with Muddy Waters, interviewed by Paul Oliver, from Blues Off The Record

New Tool for some Bluz Pickin "in progress"
« on: June 09, 2011, 07:12:32 PM »
I'm having Gary Clardy in TN, build this for me.

It's basically a slope shoulder Gibson J45.
Rosewood and sitka with ebony bridge and fingerboard and mahogany neck.
The bracing is moved forward and he will use a regular bridge rather than a
"belly" bridge. 

I'll be doing mostly fingerstyle blues with it.

Here's some pics in progress:
