Wasn't he great? Glad I was lucky enough to enjoy his fiddle playing, banjo playing,fancy footwork and sly humor a few times in a couple of local small clubs.

Thanks,
Gary

Since we have a few Ry Cooder fans out there, here are The Moula Banda Rhythm Aces from the Les Blank movie of the same name, laying down one of the greasiest grooves ever invented, Down In Hollywood. Featuring Flaco, Terry Evans, Bobby King, Jim Keltner. Dig how Ry makes his slide solo sound like a tenor sax on that strat with the legendary Tesico Del Rey gold foil pickup:



[I would guess this may not be on youTube for long, Cooder never wanted the movie released in the US for reasons that totally elude me. I was grinning from ear to ear for the whole song]

Thanks Rivers.  How did you know I am a Ry Cooder fan anyways?  It made me wanting to stand up and move!

The guy can't help it - rhythm just drops off him.  He's so natural.

Lindy,

You know it!  I have viewed it repeatedly over the past couple of months.  It is simply outstanding!

Was in the Seattle and Port Townsend area last week doing a couple of workshops and saw James Hill perform his version of "Billie Jean" at ukefest 2010.  To say he is taking ukulele playing to the limits is an understatement.
