Hi Lyle - I should have phrased that better, but I was using "clam" without the 'i' in the sense of mistake on the guitar. Before demonstrating Rev. Gary Davis's 'The Great Change in Me' in a class at the Port Townsend workshop, Ari had described a certain very tricky part of the song as "the pinnacle", where Gary Davis is singing over a fast series of partial chords. A friend had given this spot in the song the name. It might have been Nick Perls, but I would have to doublecheck. Ari liked it, so it stuck. When he then played the song himself in the class and got to "the pinnacle", he flubbed something -- barely -- and said in his very dry way, while still blazing through the song, "I just blew the pinnacle."

I was confused, because I'd never heard the term "clam" before. Thanks. I learned something new today, and I'm barely awake.

It?s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren?t pessimistic. We?re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That?s different.
