A lot of these white boys play the blues real good. Ain't but one thing about most of them though: most can't sing a thing - David Honeyboy Edwards, from his bio

Very enjoyable Tom. Loved it. I sure would like to hear that one up close to in acoustic setting. Is that one a long scale model with 12? If so, that's certainly the way to go. I have an original 6 string model from '33 and love it. I like the new 6 strings almost as much. I was just always worried about the 12 string model being kinda harder to control the sound but it seems like your having success at it. Do you have time to mention the scale of the guitar and what kind of string gauges and tuning are working well for you? Sure wish I could try one sometime.

P.S. and I wish more people played BBQ Bob songs or this Curley Weaver style. My favorite verse of all times by Weaver or Hicks is...

See two women running hand in hand, repeat
Know by that one got the other ones man
