I saw Johnny Shines with Robert Lockwood in London many years ago - a two night stint. At the end of the second night, some fool in the audience shouts, "Johnny Shines, you are a sexist!" Shines says, "What?" Guy repeats it. Shines says, "Texas? I don't know nothing about Texas." Collapse of interlocutor - Johnny Shines, by Chris Smith on prewarblues list, Bunker Hill, also present, dates it Sunday 28th October 1979

Two Gary Davis pieces in C.  I forget the name of the first one. You'll almost certainly recognize the second. There is attempted shtick here as well.

MuckOvision is obviously your forte and I hate to say this, but you look like I imagined you would! Now is that good or bad  ;)

Where was furball though?

Thanks all. Fuzzball and I are currently in negotiations regarding his on screen compensation. He'd demanding human intended cans o' tuna and more bare leg access. Tough cookie, that quat!  ;)

The second piece is "Candyman". A man named Porter Irving came through Gary Davis' town around 1905, I believe, and played that song. Exactly who Porter Irving was is lost to history!!!

Anyway, it's awesome that you're on a Country Blues forum, despite not knowing a song that I strongly associate with the genre. You probably know tunes that you've been listening to for years which I don't know, and that's what makes this forum so great. I really like your playing because it allows me to hear things at a different tempo. Bravo!

Nice job O'Muck.  You have the patented Gary Davis big sound down.

Did you get that guitar on Bagel Street?

I see that YouTube has removed the star ratings from all their videos. All my hard work's been in vain!    :o :'(

Anyway, here's my five stars for Mr.O'muck again: *****. I hope they will be safe here!  :)

Cheers

Yep, as we suspected, not really an alien but a human bean.

Great stuff!
