Ellen,
I'm sure there are blues fans who work at Gibson that would represent your company better by being a contributing member of our forum rather than just posting links to the Gibson site periodically.

Cheers.

Heck, I post a link to a story off Gibson's site now and then. They do put up some good stuff. But we can all subscribe to their newsletter and get the full list. (And just might win a nice guitar in the process!)

Certainly not trying to stir the pot. Just trying to share our content with you guys... Take it or leave it. Thanks.

I read that before. Let's see ... where to begin?

All Along the Watchtower is not a blues song.

And Wish You Were Here most certainly isn't.

The Sky Is Crying doesn't even have a guitar solo.

The rest of the list ... well it seems to be just naming the only blues songs you know rather than contributing anything to the discussion. I also have to admit to being nonplussed as to why you chose Whipping Post to represent the Allman's rather than the acknowledged classic, slide guitar tour-de-force and far more bluesy Statesbro Blues off the same album.

At the end of the day it reads like a bad, clumsy attempt at viral marketing created by people who don't actually know what viral marketing is.
