Bluegrass? Country Blues? Or is it just music.]]> "Blues." One of us replied.
"Is it bluegrass?" Was his next question. I don't think he'd heard anything other than electric pub-blues-rock under the banner of "Blues" before.
Anyhoo, he came along with us to see Honeyboy earlier this year, that dispelled any misunderstandings.

I used to be in an acoustic trio that covered Blind Blake's "Diddie Wah Diddie." Sometimes we would go into "Move it on Over" from there and back to Blake. That was always a fun couple of songs to play.
I think some of that stuff originally happens accidentally. I know our jam bunch occasionally starts out on one song and ends up on another 'cuz somebody moved from a lick that both songs shared into the different tune. Last weekend I heard it happen to a veteran blues band; it took the lead singer about 24 bars to realize that the guitar player was startin' a different tune than the singer thought it was. (How'd ya' like to be a John Lee Hooker cover band...?)

As for the blues-country-bluegrass mix that you're encountering -- I come from a bluegrass/country background. In playing solo, I take those songs that I know and they come out bluesy -- Hank Sr,. Jimmy Martin, old Stanley Bros., etc. It's very interesting to find all of the connections and variations of "Sitting on Top of World" or even "John Hardy."

At this point in my life I have a full time job and have the ultimate gig. I'm the Dad with two boys. but I'm allowed to play music when I can in both private and in public and my family supports it and even participates. I receive little or no money from playing and it doesnt matter to me in the least. Its kinda like community service of a sort. People entertain themselves watching you do what you love to do.

Every Day I have the Blues
