It wasn't so much that I would ask them how to play. A lot of the stuff I knew from old records.... What they usually talked to me about was how to conduct myself as a person. They tried to keep me away from all the things they went through. They tried to keep my nose clean, and they succeeded pretty good - Jerry Ricks, on time spent with the Old Ones, interview in Blues Review No. 46, April 1999

Great piece Frank! Remind me to show you "Step it Down" a book written by Bessie Jones and Bess Lomax Hawes, next time we see each other. :)

Real nice, frankie. Takin' your time, love it. Cool guitar too. Some kind of Harmony?

o'muck - thanks for the tip! I just ordered that used from Amazon.

uncle bud - it's a harmony hollywood. love that guitar. A friend rescued it from a dumpster in Columbia, SC and it's served faithfully ever since, despite perpetually being on the verge of imploding. I bought the two toaster-top dearmonds from Skip Henderson way back when they could be had for 9 or 10 bucks each.

a long, long time ago...

No finer motivation. Great slide tone on this one by the way...

At five minutes and five seconds, it's not nearly long enough. 

Your singing and playing really capture the spirit of the song.  Another beautiful performance of a really beautiful song.

thanks, guys.

dj - there's one I recorded last month that went on for about 8 minutes or so before I stopped. It's a totally different kind of song, but the length does put me about halfway into "In A Gadda Da Vida" territory.

Frank, there woulda been nothing wrong with "In A Gadda Da Vida" if they could've avoided the bombast. We're all persuaded you've got the sense to do that--go for it. Your audience is telling you you can go for eight, maybe even nine, minutes.

well, here's 8 minutes recorded almost exactly a month ago - I wasn't really thinking about 'going long,' but that's the way it turned out. I totally understand if your attention wanes! You can tell by the expression on Uncle Carmine's eyeball holes that he's really in the moment, though:



I have an idea for something that would be fun to stretch out on for longer, maybe. We'll see. It has to be fun to mess with or you just kind of sit around repeating yourself.

Well done, Frankie--great playing as usual!

Just don't go black light and DayGlo on us, son.

black light and DayGlo

perfect description of my older cousin's room, probably about 1975!

maybe you'll like this, too...  but I understand if it's not for everybody. while i like playing like this just for myself, it's not something i'd normally present to anyone.

maybe it's not so much for watching... just play it in the background while you do something else.
