So did you offer to jam with her,Rico? She couldn't be any more demented than you, so where could the problem be....? (I also knew a great honky-tonk piano player,who had made his living in barrelhouses,who had to quit cuz of arthritis-that does suck (diffuse pun).

While I rotate many songs in my "play list", some remain pretty constant. Also, I change all of them - some of them so much, you would only be able to recognize them by the lyrics. I also throw 4 or 5 original tunes into the mix.

The core songs are:
"Have You Ever Loved a Woman?"
"I'll Get Along Somehow" (old Lonnie Johnson tune)
"Lucky Old Sun"
"People Get Ready"
"Nobody Knows You when You're Down and Out"
"Johnsburg, Illinois" (Tom Waits tune)
"Song For You" (Leon Russell)
"Come Home For Christmas"
"Have a Little Faith" (John Hiatt)
"Hoodoo Man Blues"

While not an entirely blues set, my bastardization of these songs (and others) brings them closer to the Blues genre than the originals.

I hope this helps...

Kevin

Mike! You are also right on w/tritone buzz! Remember the LH/RH stuff--the 2nd positions you were going to try--the tritone voicing is what makes it sound so cool (to my ear at least!). Hey--work those Beatle songs! I love those 2 & I love to sing Fixing A Hole, want to be able to sing/play Birthday & Back in the USSR. OR's Dock of the Bay was one of the first songs I learned to play well (progression) on guitar--played & sang it everytime/everywhere we played! I'm so impressed w/your getting so much of Dr. John's work under your hands! I want Pine Top & Cow Cow Boogie bad, but I've got a while to go before I get there! I've got Texas Boogie, New Orleans 8-Bar Blues, Motor Junket Blues, & James Booker Blues down fairly good--but I'm still a ways away from mastering Qualified, St. James Infirmary, Frankie and Johnny, & C.C. Rider.

Doc! I read the Gig post--I admire your civil-minded atitude in dealing w/a caustic bandmember ordeal--the situation could only have continued to deteriorate. I believe you really strive to keep sight of your moral compass--& it's no surprise--you are indeed a true bearer of the torch (that w/a brilliant flame of blue!). I always liked DrJ's Such A Night (his rendering in The Last Waltz was a classic of classics!)--it may look/sound simple enough, but that LH will make or break you. Talk about sing-a-longs--do you do Let's Go Get Stoned? Folks love to sing that chorus!

Doc/Mike--Hardtimes & Nobody knows You... are a must & when Doc mentioned JReed, I thought about a real must for any beginning/intermed/adv key, guitar, &/or harp player--From the Masters of The Blues series: 12 Hits From The Best Of Jimmy Reed. I've worn out my tape playing along on either keyboard (LH rhythm), guitar (LH&RH), or harp (phrasing/riffs)--the more you play along w/the songs, the more licks/runs you learn to incorporate! Doc--I'd might ner buy a bus ticket just to come hear/see you do What'd, Mojo, Lovelight, & Turn Loose! What a hoot you're boung to raise w/those hooters! I'll bet your TLTenderness gets a lot of belly buttons well acquainted!

Ric! Hey I'm glad you mentioned BT&MG's! I've got That's The Way It Should Be. They do an inst. of Ann Peebles's classic, I Can't Stand The Rain & SC's handling of the signature guitar riff is, to say the least, pure Cropper!

MissNinni--where are you--I thought about you & NS's style--do you do AP's song?

On last item! I only just saw Blues Brothers 2000 a couple of wks ago & if Jr Wells & Lonnie Brooks Lookin for a Fox wasn't enough to make it worth the view, James Brown layin down Please Please at the end certainly was. If I am not mistaken in remembering, so help me out, but I believe the I saw the classic live broadcast of JB doing PP on the Ed Sullivan show--'63-4-5??? One thing for sure--the stage presence of this legendary soul talent has not waned! Anybody ever here his arrangement of Kansas City! The punches are brilliant!
