I swore to myself I wasn't writing another goddamned broken-hearted love song, but then my lover took flight and I found myself alone, worn out, disillusioned, and heartbroken in a way I hadn't known before. The future was looking like an exhaustingly long walk through a knee-deep tunnel of shit ending in death, so, it seemed like it wasn't going to be an overly joyous next record after all - Gill Landry on making Love Rides A Dark Horse

Welcome Spotnik. There was a rumor a while back that a missing Willie Brown Paramount (Grandma Blues/Sorry Blues) surfaced but I never heard anything about that lately.

This is a reintroduction. I was on this forum briefly a long time ago. I recently found an old list of passwords to some forums, including this one - it still worked. Long-time fan of old blues and jazz, and a guitar picker. Took several classes with John Miller at the 2019 Port Townsend Blues Week, and I also have several of Johnís DVD lessons.

A belated welcome Jono. I'm just over the border in East Sussex and I know of at least one Weenie also in Kent.

Hi all, Iím David. 57 years old. Returning to guitar playing after thirty plus years off. Although I never was any good, some of the muscle memory returned pretty quickly. Iíve always loved country blues, coming at it via the usual suspects, Duane Allman, Dead, Hot Tuna, have come to really love the originals like Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson, etc. Iíve recently decided to concentrate on fingerstyle blues in my own playing, am currently working on Shake That Thing as taught by Stefan Grossman and Spike Drivers Blues. Iím pleasantly surprised that I seem to have a good feel for Mississippi John Hurtís style. Hoping to continue to learn and improve and have fun.

Hello everybody! My name is Dave and I am new here. To be honest been reading this place for a while and finally decided to join. I love blues, it's been my passion since I was a child. I used to spend my summer school holidays at my grandfather's property in Sicily here and there he had a huge collection of different blues music and we used to listen to it during all summer while I was there. He had a great taste and music  I have to say.

Hi Folks,
 
Iíve been here 16+ years so maybe itís time to introduce myself.  Like many of you, an encounter with the music of John Hurt and Lightning Hopkins, among others, led to a lifetime fascination with this music, and eventually attempting to play it.  I got to meet a few of old timers back in the day.  For quite a while, I collected blues, jazz, old-time and ethnic 78s, but those have all been passed along to other collectors.

A lifetime of work in the intermountain west has been winding down for a while, leaving more time to spend with the music here in our fortress of solitude in New Mexico. That includes attending PT, taking a couple of pilgrimages to the land where the blues began, and lessons with our very own musical guru John Miller.

This is great site with knowledgeable and generous contributors.  Thanks to them and folks behind the curtain who make it work.

Stay safe and be well yíall.

Eric in New Mexico
