My songs ain't writ on papuh... them words, they just come to me while I sing. That's a true God-given talent I was borned with. Only real blues singers like me can make songs on the spot. No mutha's gonna teach you that - Guitar Gabriel, PTCBW 1995 in a semisober moment responding to a naïve student who asked "where ideas for his songs come from?"

Ah ha, I have made that exact same mistake, creating an article when I intended it to be a category. I have deleted it.

It's weird until you get used to it, you have to do everything 'bottom-up' in a categorized wiki, essentially creating a low-level article first with the new category tag on it, then clicking on the new (red) category link to create and edit the new category / sub-category.

Anyway, kudos to you for understanding the layout and I hope you'll feel inspired to do more wiki editing.

Hi all,
just to let you know I uploaded a jpg of Banjo Ikey Robinson and linked it to his artists page.

Over the last few weeks I've been adding entries to the Weeniepedia annotated bibliography.  It's now up to 19 entries.

I'll second that, on both counts. I really must get my act together and add some!

Further to that I see there's quite a useful list of blues books here...but that is all it is...a list. http://www.earlyblues.com/blues%20books%20-%20recommendations.htm

Hardly what you'd call a "comprehensive bibliography", is it?

Still a good list on that site, though.

Thanks for adding to the bibliography, dj. I've got a bunch of stuff to add there as well but am first dealing with migrating the revised Lemon lyrics over.

Speaking as someone who folk claim lives in a book and magazine warehouse, no, but to others it might appear "comprehensive". :) But I take your point.

Hi all,
I've been adding lyrics to Weeniepedia, artist pages, etc.  All of the Guitar Slim & Jellybelly, Cedar Creek Sheik, Tom Dickson, and Gabriel Brown lyrics that have been transcribed have been entered as well as a lot of others.  There are now over 650 Country Blues song lyrics entered there, with the complete lyrics of many artists transcribed.  Check it out, it's really becoming quite a resource.
All best,
Johnm

Hi all,
I don't have any sense of how much folks are visiting/utilizing Weeniepedia, but I've been doing a bunch of entries there.  There are now lyrics to 698 Country Blues songs available there, and I've added artist pages on Ralph Willis, Hambone Willie Newbern, Frank Hovington, Uncle Dave Macon, Jimmie Rodgers, The Two Poor Boys, and Lonzie Thomas.  If you haven't been there for a while or have never examined it, you might want to check it out, it's in the left Main Menu column.
All best,
Johnm

Well, I just wanted to say, that I, for one, visit Weeniepedia quite often, and that I think that it is a tremendous resource. I do believe that I'm not alone on this, but somehow, when you take things like this for granted, you easily forget to express your gratitude towards it.

Anyway, thanks for the great work, everyone involved!

I'll second all of that. Keep up the good work, especially all you tireless lyric transcribers.

Hi all,
Just a Weeniepedia update:  There are now more than 700 Country Blues song lyric transcriptions there, and the complete recorded lyrics of several musicians are transcribed.
All best,
Johnm
