My name is Clarence Baggett.I am 57 yrs. old,married ,kids,grandkids etc.I have been playing guitar since 12yrs. old.
I was visiting this site and knew I had to join.I was born and raised in Memphis Tn., so I was exposed to a lot of different music(lucky me).In the 60's we would go down to Beale and play on the corners for change etc I met Furry Lewis at one of these mini concerts and I was hooked.At this time we hung on Beale or down at the North End on main.I started slide around 69,switched to bass around 73,lot of pickers ,not many bass players.Played all over Memphis,mid south,georgia etc.
Now live in Hardy Ar.,back in the woods,playing bass in a bar band..WWW.MySpace-HeyWyre Band....Gigging steady,
still having fun.All these years later still playing around with bottle neck& slide,Still an ole Bluesman at heart...
