When people from Australia or Japan or Italy say, 'Oh, I love the blues,' they're not talking about the Southwest blues styles, the Georgia 12-string players, ragtime Piedmont styles or whatever. It's the Delta blues. If you say, 'Who do you like?' they'll name Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Son House - Dick Waterman, to Francis Davis, quoted in Davis' book

That is Frank, Devin.  Pretty cool to be able to play a duet from Ireland to New Jersey!
All best,

I'm playing the mandolin on Lonesome Katy...  I know NOTHING about playing mandolin (less about fiddle), but I figure that's the listener's problem!

Laura and I have been playing around with this J.D. Short tune...  it's fun to sing together. The recording is pretty rough and not really helped by the compression to get it on the Back Porch. All the overdubbing was done using Audacity and the onboard mic from my laptop.

A longer version is in the works.

That Lonesome Katy is great stuff, and the addition of the mandolin really works great. Wish I could figure out how to play upside down guitar in real time like that, and do those trills.

Thanks very much for the version of Jaydee Short's "Spoonful", Laura and Frank.  I've loved that ever since I first heard it, and your version is the first time I've heard someone other than Jaydee do it.  It's a natural for the treatment you guys gave it.
All best,
Johnm

Thanks for listening to that John and Phil.  It was really a test run though.. we have something much longer and it's going to have some cool stuff done to it yet. I was initially trying to sync these tracks together as I have a bit more free time but the results were..umm..horrendous! It's kind of exciting to see how they turn out after Frankie has got done noodling with them.
I only started listening to JD recently but I think he's just fantastic - makes me want to learn harp (!) There are some wonderful tracks on that Legacy of the Blues album.  Along with Spoonful, I am very much enjoying  "The Red River Run" and "Make Me Down A Pallet".

Nicely played, Monkeyhanger - you are absolved!

I forget which I'm atoning for, or precisely how much I'm in for, but it's probably a lot...  best to get busy:

I've got more time on my hands lately. First time recording using this camera and cheapo lapel mike - attached to guitar string at headstock!
