He had a left hand like God. He didn't know what key he was playing in, but he played them all. He could play the ragtime stride bass, but it bothered him because his stomach got in the way of his arm, so he used a walking bass instead. I can remember when I was thirteen - this was 1896 - how Turk would play one note with his right hand and at the same time four with his left. We called it 'sixteen' - they called it boogie-woogie - Eubie Blake remembering William Turk, from Giles Oakley's The Devil's Music, BBC

Well done, Phil. On top of hitting all the right licks, it really captures the spirit of the piece--the Rev's spirit--from within the soul.

Love 'em both. Shake 'em on Down, or whatever you're calling it, really captures that Delta string band feel, like the Sheiks, in a way you just don't get much these days.

And it's really cool to see Frank, to whom I'm eternally grateful for explaining how to do a thumb-over F shape in a long-ago email exchange.

Thanks all and a special thanks to Mrs. Saltmarsh Bill who I think was the videographer of the two videos. Saltmarsh came up and participated in one number as well.Weenies are everywhere! Now all we need is a secret handshake.

Thank you for the gracious invitation to sit in.  Despite some shaky moments, both in my chair and the camerawoman's, Mr. O'Muck was able to perform an excellent Diving Duck.

I see I have been remiss in neglecting to praise the stupendous harmonica work of Joe Bellulovich at last evenings performance. He did two solo pieces that were incredible! Also the sheer pleasure of having Frank & Kim join in on a few numbers was just wonderful. Listening to them play along was a terrific experience really. Frank's guitar work is so much the real deal old Blues sound that it enhanced my own playing a great deal and the texture and sound of Kim's playing was equally wonderfu.  The harmonica & fiddle together is a sho-nuff lonesome sound. So thanks guys!

Hell Yeah!!!  Great job everyone, sounds like a brass band coming down the road.

I'll make it to one of these gigs soon.
