The sweet, passionate melody captivated his heart from the first note; it was full of radiance, full of the tender throbbing of inspiration and happiness and beauty, continually growing and melting away; it rumoured of everything on earth that is dear and secret and sacred to mankind; it breathed of immortal sadness and it departed from the earth to die in the heavens - Ivan Turgenev

Old time blues in Nashville?
« on: June 19, 2010, 10:13:36 AM »
I'm going to be relocating to Nashville soon and I was wondering if anyone on the forum knew if there were any musicians in that area who are interested in old time blues. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I walked into a music store on the main drag in Nashville in 1972 picked up a guitar and started playing  Twelve Stix by Gary Davis. A Mailman came in listened and then asked me where I was from. When I answered New York City he replied "I didn't know they played the same music we like up there".
My experience is that many of the guitar players down there know and can play a bit of everything and are familiar with more obscure stuff than you might expect. Just go on over to Gruhn's Guitars and ask. They'll know.
My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music.
