Welcome Mike - glad you found us with Wax's help. ;)  That is quite a variety of styles you have going -- never a dull moment I suppose!

Here is a link to your page (I had trouble googling it):

...and this would be an electrified sample - sounds good and good luck on the award!

Welcome, Mike.

You'll find a lot of folks here felt like you, that they were living in a country blues desert, before they found Weenie Campbell. Pyrochlore had never played country blues with anyone else (for what, 10- 20 years, Alex?) until he came to Port Townsend after meeting us all here first. Now he's had Mary Flower playing duets with him in a house concert in his home in Calgary.

Share your passion here.

All for now.

BJ:

About 18 yrs. but after finding Weenie Campbell it all changed.

And you PEI folks, We're all fellow Canadians.

Very glad to have you aboard.

Don't listen to Slack, he's a punk rocker now.

And agreeing with Unkie Bud is hazardeous...

Welcome Cheapfeet! I'm from "away" but have spent lots of time on the Island vacationing. Beautiful place. Glad to hear there's country blues there as well. Congrats on the ECMA nomination.

You might want to take a look at the bottom of this linked message for my take on a Patton turnaround in C.

And feel free to post a new thread with whatever questions or thoughts you have about playing Patton, Lemon or anyone else.

Hey Mike,

As UB suggested, it would be a good idea to either start a new thread, or resurrect an old one (I thought I saw you checking out an old thread om turnarounds earlier -G-). Country Blues Licks and Lessons would be the place.

All for now.

Hello folks, new member here.  I am 53 years old living in Vermont for the last 30 years - outside NYC before that.  Like most everyone here I love the blues, expecially - but not only - country blues.  I played folk style guitar - strumming and pattern picking as a kid and then put it down for 20 years while I raised my family.  I picked it up again about 3 years ago and I have been absolutely addicted to country blues ever since.  I am just getting to the point that I can actually play some of these tunes.  I fell in love with this stuff in my 20s while I was in grad school and one of my buddies turned me on to Roy Bookbinder.  Looks like a great forum. 

Rob.

Hello to all !

 I just joined today. I've been visiting guitar forums for awhile, but just recently visited your forum. I'm strictly an acoustic player, who plays mainly at Church & Bible Studies. I had never heard of guys like Blind Blake, MJH, Blind Lemon Jefferson, as well as others until a few years ago. My favorite has been Rev. Gary Davis.

 I just really enjoy this style of music on the acoustic guitar. It's fun to listen to, and extremely fun to play. I'm not that advance, but love to play. I look forward to learning more from the wealth of knowledge on this forum. I've already been looking around some, and found some interesting reading.

 Look forward to getting to know some of you better.

 Mark

Hello y'all.  I just found this site.  I'm loving the Juke Radio, and I'm digging into the wealth of info in the forums.  I've been getting into country blues with the help of Little Brother's site recently (after 30 yrs. of playing just about everything else).  Between this forum, LB's, and Mandolin Cafe', I'll be picking guitars and mandolins in front of the computer a lot!

Another new guy on the board, albeit old in vintage - 57.  I've been fixated on the blues since about 1965, which was a pretty good time to discover that pathway.  I occasionally make forays into Cajun and Western Swing, but blues is where I always boomerang back to.  I play harp quite well, guitar adequately enough to keep myself amused and perpetually challenged.  My main love is triathlon, and as I am a far better triathlete than I am a musician, I spend most of my time playing to my strengths and training myself to a frazzle (which is why I am perpetaully challenged by the guitar....).  I love the discipline required to become proficient at my sports as well as my instruments (there's also a mandolin in there somewhere...), but until I retire in a few years - or get seriouly injured - there's not enough hours in my life to do justice to music.  Alas and woe.

Beyond all this, I spend far too much time thinking about Garfield Akers and Geeshie Wiley.  You know?
