...traditional musicians, too, often try to "get it down just like" an admired player picks a particular tune. This is not slavish imitation for its own sake but rather a passionate desire to get at the very sinews of the style, based on the realization that the impact of traditional music depends on detail and an evocative context... - Art Rosenbaum, Old-Time Mountain Banjo

Blind Blake's Black Dog Blues

Here's an attempt on another difficult but fun tune....  I think this was the first Blake tune I fell in love with lots of years ago.

Not only well played and sang, but excellent tone and something rare, solid slow peaceful pace. Not rushed... damned fine. Kind of stuff I enjoy listening to.

Very very nice!
