Uncle John Oh my aching back

Posted on April 12, 2017 at 5:40pm 37 Comments

Just an update on John's ongoing back problems

I called John today after noticing he wasn't active in the past few days on the Nation or FB

Sorry to say his back problems seem to be worse  He ended up in the emergency room last night with pain and the inability to stand or move  He is back home although still not all that well  He is hoping to see his family Doc for advice on the next step to recovery

He can't sit or stand for any length of time  So emails or FB messages…

The July issue of Acoustic Guitar has a good article on Blind Willie Johnson   Not only that but there is a side article on wood from Blind Willies house used for cigar box guitars  Neat stuff



Gary Clark Jr Making It Count

Posted on November 29, 2015 at 12:49pm 4 Comments

Just read a review for Gary Clarks new CD  Making It Count  

Ill quote

There was some kinda Quaker Oats can turned into some sort of three string guitar hanging around the studio  So I picked it up and the song Shake just happened 

Cool no?

Well it’s three strings and out     

You think ya can play

I think you should quit

But what can I say...


Everybody is an expert

Except for their own stuff

I’ve never seen such egos

Really, I think I’ve had enough


So ya can write a song

That sounds good to you

Just like a third grader

Roses are red my CBA is blue.


We have people lecture
